^ Yeah, that's what the thread is meant for. :P

The moment you have actual spoilers or raws, you can make a new thread for the chapter straight away.

I was so disappointed there was no RAWS today....its like finding out theres not really a Santa on Christmas morning. *WAH!!* lol
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: NeeNee on December 01, 2012, 01:59:55 AM
I'm still not sure when they are supposed to be out. Does the magazine always appear the first of the month?

The old one hasn't even been scanlated and I'm already waiting for the new chapter.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: Wikkelsoee on December 07, 2012, 11:28:47 PM
^ Well, we're almost in the middle of December, so it won't be long (unless the chapter will be late because of holidays or something. I don't know how it is in Japan). I'm trying to stay positive :D
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: NeeNee on December 07, 2012, 11:34:43 PM
^ So there is one coming out this month, right? Or do they skip a number for the New Year? Or is that only for weekly magazines?
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: Wikkelsoee on December 07, 2012, 11:38:50 PM
There have been new years illustrations together with a few chapters, right? I don't think they are going to skip a chapter, bu you never know. Kazue might be busy.

Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: Paradox on December 29, 2012, 10:51:43 AM
I hope it comes out in the next few days...That guy in the Raw thread on mangafox gave me a little heart attack. I've dreamed this night that the chapter is out. The exwires were striving against the mirror mystery :/
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: NeeNee on December 29, 2012, 06:07:56 PM
^ Your dream might be prophetic.

And yeah, that's why I made this thread. If you have a general spoilers thread, you'll be disappointed every time someone posts and it's not spoilers. Here, you know you shouldn't expect anything, because if there were real spoilers, there would've been a new thread (you all know you can make a thread for the chapter as soon as the raws are out, right? Don't wait for me. Just call it "Chapter XX Discussion" or some such.)
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: Paradox on December 29, 2012, 06:21:40 PM
I trust not. Ernst Egin was there, too xD

Someone on mangafox wrote it won't be long because spoilers for DGM are already out (what's DGM?).
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: NeeNee on December 29, 2012, 06:24:01 PM
^ D.Gray-Man. Another monthly series in the same magazine.

Post by: earthforge on January 25, 2013, 03:55:36 PM
I mope mope mope, whinge whinge whinge....

We have well over a week till the official release date (Feb 4). I want to know what happens neeext. Ironically, although last month's chapter was really short, I'm not concerned because it wrapped up nicely.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: Wikkelsoee on January 25, 2013, 05:23:45 PM
I really hope the chapter will be longer this month. I didn't mind last month as it was probably because of the holidays, but I don't think I can take 19 pages to months in a row. I'll get abstinences that way.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: NeeNee on January 27, 2013, 06:56:59 AM
Booored.

Is it really gonna be until the 4th? Or do we usually already get spoilers before the official release?
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: Wikkelsoee on January 27, 2013, 12:41:36 PM
^ We sometimes get spoilers before the release, don't we? But I'm not really sure...
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: VacuumTan on January 27, 2013, 12:51:09 PM
Maybe they're not too strict with their own release-date or something? So that they sometimes release the magazine a few days earlier?

It's not as bad as the whole Comic Gene thing, though.

[Hey, I'm actually pretending to be not afraid of posting every time since I've been away for a while!]
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: Paradox on January 29, 2013, 06:28:26 PM
D.Gray Man is out, so it won't take a long time anymore...? Like the last time.

By the way, I think chap 42 has only 19 pages because Katou was busy with the movie and the novel. Both of them were released in december.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread

What do you mean DGM is out? It's on hiatus this month.

Sorry, I have just seen an update. I didn't look closely.

And I have dreamed again of the new chapter. xD
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: NeeNee on January 30, 2013, 04:09:36 PM
^ You should make a thread about Blue Exorcist dreams.

(I'd do it myself, but I don't have any dreams, so it would be kinda stupid. XD)
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: NeeNee on February 22, 2013, 12:22:11 PM
Well, this place has certainly gone quiet.

When's the new chapter again?
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: Paradox on February 22, 2013, 12:28:01 PM
It's a crapshoot, isn't it? I think, next week.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: Wikkelsoee on February 22, 2013, 02:30:56 PM
Do you think this month's chapter is going to be shorter? Those three days February doesn't have shouldn't make much of a difference.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: Anya on February 22, 2013, 03:53:46 PM
I love this time of a month when the spoiler thread is getting more lively.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: VacuumTan on February 22, 2013, 05:23:30 PM
It's still a week from now, though.

Personally, I only get antsy, like, three days before the usual RAW-release. That, however, has me chewing down my nails to the point where my fingers actually hurt.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: NeeNee on February 26, 2013, 08:24:23 PM
Still nothing?

Only two days until the end of the month.

^ Last month we didn't even see the raw before the translated chapter was released... It's somehow boring when we don't have anything to guess about.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: NeeNee on February 26, 2013, 08:35:51 PM
^ Yeah, I actually prefer a little time between the raws and the translation as well.

Gives us more food for discussion.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread

Yeah, exactly. Looks like this month we won't be seeing the raws, again.

It's not much of a spoiler, but kato's posted a sketch of one of this month's pages on her twitter https://twitter.com/katohhhhhh showing Mephisto at the Vatican. So it does indeed look like it'l be focusing on Yukio and Shura's plot as opposed to the exwires'

Err, I thought that I'd come out the first days of March, since we're missing two or three days that they can delay the publication.

... On another note: Kato is the kind of person that shares pictures or her food online, huh?

That is useful though. I didn't expect Mephisto to be providing more infodumps this month. I guess he's likely to be talking about the alternate organization, or maybe what the demon-eaters are and how they do it. Should be interesting, but not exactly fun.

Yeah, that could be the cover page...You're right. Yukio isn't holding his guns.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: earthforge on March 21, 2013, 03:48:32 PM
Cover page for certain. No idea what they're supposed to be doing. For some reason Yukio's aiming the crossbow downwards.

Betting this next chapter will be Rin-tachi gets a mission while Yukio continues to go nutty.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: VacuumTan on March 21, 2013, 05:18:24 PM
Go home Shima, you're drunk.

I don't know, but I don't like the pullovers. Bon, Paku and Izumo (only like, really early on, though... right?) wore one, but everyone else always went with just a shirt. ... Does this mean it's time for winter-uniforms and snowy/autmn-y backgrounds starting with this chapter?

*thinks about the anime*

Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: keemew2 on March 21, 2013, 08:31:03 PM
Well, technically a crossbow makes sense. Crossbows are analogous to guns. It's still a projectile you fire. I'm sure Yukio would be using a crossbow if guns didn't exist. IN fact, the flow goes like this Bow/arrow>crossbow>gun. So, if something happened and Yukio can't gain access to guns, the only logical medieval weapon for him to use would be a crossbow. Now the question is....what happened?
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: Paradox on March 21, 2013, 08:54:34 PM
I don't like the pullovers either. It doesn't fit for Rin.

On the subject of crossbows...maybe they have to fight in silence? A gunshot is extremely loud and would attract more demons. Koneko's hatchet, Shima's stick and even Rin's sword are less noisy compared to a gun, summoning a familiar and Arias.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: keemew2 on March 21, 2013, 10:20:35 PM
^ That's what silencers are for.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread

Now the question is....what happened?

Crossbows and bows aren't necessarily less deadly. They can cause extreme trauma. Especially crossbows. Think about the extreme level of force on a projectile object. If you load crossbows with hot metal bolts, you can kill someone pretty easily and painfully, since the momentum can bury the projectile in and throw them a distance.

The problem is that anime heroines and heroes with bow and arrow are often portrayed as ineffectual. Just like with swords, trauma from an attack is drastically minimized and turned into a gushing blood from which there is an endless supply.

^ The thought of Yukio with a silenced gun scares me.

Haha. Special ops Yukio.

Though Yukio's not the best choice for special ops missions. He's way too unstable at the moment. Even after the incoming big kablooie and return to normalcy, Yukio might be changed and less ideal for such missions.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: GolPhee on March 22, 2013, 04:44:16 PM
Soo Rin and Shima taking up the front there. I wonder if this means it's Shima's turn in the spotlight - maybe he decided to go down the knight route and has to train with Rin? That would explain the "why me" expression he's wearing.

Who's the guy at the back? And is Koneko carrying an axe? Not to mention Shiemi who looks to be holding a machete o.0
A Hallowe'en chapter perhaps? That would account for all the derpy expressions
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: Paradox on March 22, 2013, 06:12:25 PM
Do you mean at the farthest end of the group? It's Takara. It's a pity that Godai'in is not on that picture. I want him to join the exwires.
Hallowe'en! Yes, please! Wait... isn't it still summer? Are we getting a time leap? *gasp* Or a special chapter?
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: GolPhee on March 22, 2013, 08:17:09 PM
Argh why can't Takara do something useful already! I was kind of hoping Shura might go after him as a spy suspect at some point, since the novelty of him is pretty much worn off now.

I don't know - they got back from summer break a few chapters back and some time must have passed since then. Plus they're all wearing sweaters now which could be because it's autumn. On that note, the Gehenna gate opening (which will either be a major arc or the series' conclusion) is set to take place in 6 months, so that makes it around January-March time?

I'd like to see more of Godaiin too, but I don't think he's going to be an exorcist. I hope he plays more of a role in the future though.

I'm confused. Exactly where in my post did I say Bows and Cross bows were less deadly? I know for a fact they are not less deadly. I was saying they were analogues to each other. Past to future. Before they had guns they had crossbows and before crossbows they had bows. A projectile is a projectile. I completley agree with you about them being very deadly and deserve more credit in anime. In fact, crossbows and bows do more damage then an average sword, which is what the Japanese are so fond of.

I agree wholehaertedly. Takara has done only one thing helpful so far and he was a complete prig about it. Let's just name him a spy and get rid of him.
ANd seeing more of Godaiin would be nice, so long as he isn't the sacrifical lamb.  I know it's a well known ploy in anime/manga, but introducing a good character simply to kill them off for important reasons is the meanest thing to do to your fans.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: NeeNee on March 23, 2013, 01:37:58 PM
^ I think Godaiin is already past that part. If they wanted to kill him off, they would have done it around the time he was asking for the eyedrops.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: GolPhee on March 23, 2013, 08:12:37 PM
^ Not necessarily. It wouldn't be too hard to feature a scene in which he gets caught up in a battle and jumps in front of Rin to block him from an attack, or any number of other deaths. At the moment Godaiin is serving as a good side story and anchor to the normal world for Rin, but it would be a logical move to have him as a sacrificial character (although I sincerely hope Kato doesn't take him down that route).
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: NeeNee on March 23, 2013, 08:17:31 PM
^ I don't see it. If anyone dies, it'll probably be an adult.

Also, I don't think Godain has the kind of personality to throw himself in front of others. Not because he's selfish, but simply because it requires fast thinking in battle, and Godain strikes me more as the kind of person who would freeze under stress (like me).
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: keemew2 on March 24, 2013, 01:02:49 AM
^ I agree that he would most likely freeze up, but that could be where the trouble lies. They build up Godai'ins character, make everyone come to like him and all that, he's a common sight now and then something bad happens. Godai'in freezes instead of reacting and tragedy strikes. It doesn't matter how long he's been there, or how short a time he's been there, the fact of the matter is his death will impact Rin and if he does wind up hanging around a while and does gain more friends from the cast then his death would be even more of an impact. I've seen it happen. They introduced a side character into the story. HE was originally thought to be a one off character, but he wound up appearing again later on. He got on famously with the main character, but wasn't well known to the rest of the cast. I don't remember if he wound up becoming friends with the rest of the cast or not, but I do remember that he did die, very tragically, and that set the main character in the direction he needed to go to get things done. Don't ask me what it was, I can't remember, I only remember the situation. I do remember crying though. It ticked me off to no end that he died.

Holy sh*t! The new cover/sketch/whatever is beautiful!! What's that huge demon in the background? A demon king in his true form? I assume it is Azazel (king of ghosts).

Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread

That would be the oneshot spin-off, "Salaryman Exorcist: The Sorrow of Yukio Okumura". Can read it here. (http://www.mangahere.com/manga/ao_no_exorcist/v08/c046.5/)

(click to show/hide)

Poor Yukio never gets a break. But I always get a huge laugh from seeing his self-imposed suffering, whether for a gag-style cartoon or serious drama.

Well, I guess we're seeing the last gasp of making fun of Yukio's issues, because they're already causing problems for him in daily life. Just one more horrible thing to happen to him and he'll fall apart. I will be thoroughly amused when that chapter comes out.  ;D

Do you mean how to get the volumes? If there are no manga shops in your area, you can ask your local bookshop if they can order them for you (even if they don't normally sell comics, they might still be willing to do so if they know you're gonna buy it). Or you could order them online. Bookdepository.com is a good site: http://www.bookdepository.com/search?searchTerm=blue+exorcist

Eatmanga never gets it right. That said, since MangaPanda clearly aren't doing this month's chapter, S2 should realistically have it done within the next few days. Maybe we should all head over there and apply as scanlators to get it done faster :P

Eatmanga is useless.

Yup according to the website you can now read weekly shounen jump (and some monthly stuff incl AoEx) if you live in the UK, Ireland, New Zealand, Australia and South Africa. I'm not sure how many people here that affects, but presumably if it's successful the rest of Europe can't be far behind!
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: NeeNee on July 12, 2013, 12:51:18 PM
^ I very much doubt it.

Those are all English-speaking countries. The rest of Europe isn't. Usually that kind of licenses are tied to the language, so if they wanted to buy one for, say, France, they'd have to translate the magazine in French.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: sushueren on July 12, 2013, 01:27:46 PM
UK, Ireland, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand only. Viz claims they'll be simultaneous releases.

As for Asia, it's either in Chinese, Thai, or English also for Singapore and Malaysia by different publishers.  Still too limited.  Of course they can't beat rampant piracy. @_@

It's a shame they're sold as an app and not an online reader. That way you could at least use a proxy if you're not from an English speaking country. For that matter I'm amazed it's taken them this long just to leave the US - manga's a booming industry, especially if they can get their releases out faster than scanlators. The whole system needs to get with the times

Which reminds me, I hated that online reader. Flash slows down my PC a lot.    At least they adapted to the times already with SJ.  They used to be 2-3 weeks behind, now just under a week behind from Japan. But mind you the scanlations of the big 3 are released too early due to leaks. That means Viz's SJ is actually  almost simultaneous already.

Not bad.

^ Well the Viz translations are released every Monday, so if SQ released on the 4th of every month, and the 5th happens to be a Monday you would get it the next day. Unfortunately September doesn't have a Monday after the 4th until the 9th which is when we'll be getting the new chapter. I guess it gives us plenty of time to discuss the raws, although I'd rather read the translation straight away.

^^The reason Kato doesn't upload WIP sketches of the newest chapters anymore is because the publishers didn't want her to. It was nice to have them for a while though but there won't be any more. The raws should be out around the 1st like they normally are

Mangapanda's got it's ass together with some of it's other projects, and they were massively on the ball with timing when they did AoEx so fingers crossed they've decided to pick it up again. S2's got the awesome Chino now so they might actually have the chapter scanlated in good time. Failing those, Viz's version will be released on October 7th

Doesn't look like there's any preview from Kato this month . . . shame.

I honestly can't predict what's going to happen now! Will they have to go abroad? To Vatican City? Or somewhere in Europe? Or are the Illuminati keeping Izumo in Japan? Excited!

Raws are normally out on the 2nd/3rd aren't they?

someone tell me when the raws get posted. I should be pretty free for the next couple days, so chaotic and I should be able to do our rough translation again if anyone's interested.

just give me spoilers! if anythjing we get them on the 2nd of october, will Viz have it translated by Monday that falls on the . . .7. it only depends on our awesome rough translators we have here whether they got time
@archaicflash you are awesome taking your time to translate for us!
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: Archaicflash on October 01, 2013, 02:05:52 AM
@evenwiththerain we'll try our best! It's a lot of fun, and it's really good practice. We'll have to see when the raws come out. If it falls on a bad night then it may take us a little while.

They most likely will be out either tomorrow or Thursday.

since my college is lazy and I don't have anything this week yet I wanna see the chapter tomorrow. ;)
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: tardar-sauce on October 02, 2013, 07:46:29 AM
My college starts later than any other college in the area (but only by a week or two). It's the last week of September for me. I don't think there are any schools in my area that start in October (who knows? It's such a big country).

Anyway I agree with Moonlandian. I've noticed there's a trend with AnE being released on the 2nd of every month on a site I use.

Hey, It's officially the 2nd. So I'm going to check one more time Xp.  Uwahhh I'm so addicted.

EDIT: It's out now! Trust Comiczip.net to be early as hell.

wait wHAT I JUST SAW THE PREVIEW FOR NEXT EPISODE IS HE GONNA TRANSFORM IN FRONT OF EVERYONE OMG

I haven't seen it yet. Does anyone have a link?
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: GolPhee on October 11, 2013, 09:22:36 AM
He's gonna transform in front of everyone? Who? Into what? This looks fishy to me, and he says "episode" I think he might be talking about episode 15 of the anime.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: NeeNee on October 11, 2013, 10:12:29 AM
^ Ooh, right.

I always forget people are still posting their first reaction to the anime. Like, the thing's been out for over a year, why would you start liveblogging it now? But I guess that's just what people do.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: Midori no Neko on October 16, 2013, 01:48:53 AM
The forum's so quiet right now...i hope the next chapter brings more traffic. It probably will since 50 was just a transition chapter.

Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: NeeNee on October 16, 2013, 02:05:46 AM
I assure you, the forum is more active than it's ever been. But the second half of the month is always calmer, since we're done discussing the chapter and just waiting for the next one.

Feel free to launch some new topics though, if you have anything that would be fun to discuss.

I'm not positive, but the 4th is Monday, and if I remember correctly, that means most stores should be stocked on Saturday. But, I notice that claymore spoilers are out, so I'm pretty sure someone, somewhere he the magazine in hand already.

Wtf? Chino, you better tell me that's some creepy Halloween joke or I'm gonna take a plane to whatever country you live in and punch whoever did that to you. And what do you mean it's not the first time?

And, wtf man?!? You don't give explanations about why you can't do something you were doing for free to people on the internet when it's your health in the line.

Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: chinonamida on November 01, 2013, 01:23:14 PM
I am sincerely sorry for my complete lack of judgement yesterday.
I should have pm tardar and/or come up with a lie so people wouldn't have to worry.
I guess my sense of obligation is one of the last to shut down, way after judgement and tactfulness.
and now I look like a drama queen. XD

thanks everyone. I dont want to sound any more lame but thats really heart warming.

and Heavenly, please dont say that. you have no idea how much I wish it was a bad joke. T T you know it still hurt. x)

also its not the first time because I go to places I shouldnt go. thats all for explanations. I only mentioned it to make you trust me when I said I was going to be ok. I probably shouldn't have.

Then, the good news is I don't have to work today so I can look at this chapter . . . maybe later today. Im not so bad so I'll probably have it done before monday. I'll try sooner.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: NeeNee on November 01, 2013, 01:35:49 PM
Why would you lie so people wouldn't have to worry? People worrying about you is a good thing. It means they care.
A drama queen is someone who complains about an ingrown nail, not about getting stabbed.

Anyway, it's good to hear you're feeling better! :) Don't push yourself with the translation. It's okay, really. We can wait a few days. And besides, we've got other people who can help. Don't feel obliged to work on it if you're still hurting.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: chinonamida on November 01, 2013, 02:05:57 PM
oh. right. people often tell me that.

and thanks for the concern, but thats ok. you want me to pass the whole weekend looking at the wall. there's not even good anime this season.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: NeeNee on November 01, 2013, 02:11:19 PM
Hahaha, no. :)) If you feel like doing the translations, that's great.

I just don't want you to feel obliged, is all. :)
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: Desktop Warrior on November 01, 2013, 05:04:44 PM
Keeping this short and sweet.

A) Glad you're recovering, Chino. B) It's okay to show weakness, especially to your fellow AnE fans. C) Even if this hadn't happened, we'd still be telling you to take all the time you need for scanlations. We're not that demanding, haha.

So. To actually mope about spoilers in the spoiler moping thread, I'm glad we got the scans right on the first of the month this time! ...except now, I can't wait for Ch. 52. It's even worse because I've been writing one or two short fics for Ao no Exorcist every day so far for a challenge on another forum, and my NaNo fic is AnE as well. :'D
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread

Chino I'm so happy that you're feeling better! And I agree with Deskotop Warrior and the others, until you feel like doing nothing, do nothing! The most important thing is to feel good u.u

Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: Kaibutsu on November 08, 2013, 04:14:02 AM
At the end of 51, it said that the next chapter will be out in December, the January issue. Ao no Exorcist is pretty constant with releases, so unless something really goes screwy, we should see it next month.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread

I was more wondering about the issue coming out begin January.

Post by: GolPhee on November 08, 2013, 04:09:38 PM
They didn't take a break last year. Although if memory serves, the New Year's chapter was really short. But I think Kato only takes a month off in the summer
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: earthforge on November 22, 2013, 11:09:29 PM
Okay... so it's a little early but... I'm moping away for the next chapter. I want to see Izumo's past already! I want to see the deal she made with the Illuminati! I want to see her and Shiemi team up to be the most badass Tamers ever!

Mostly because I think that Izumo will demand to stay because she wants to protect her little sis. But she's likely to not tell Rin et al. I hope Rin and Shiemi (plus Paku via phone) will get through to her to break her fear.

Just 1.5 weeks more!
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: NeeNee on November 22, 2013, 11:53:02 PM
I really hope we get to meet her sister.

I wonder how good Rin & Yukio are with kids.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: Toraii212 on November 23, 2013, 11:55:00 AM
^Rin probably great.(looking at Usamaru)
Yukio...hmm...I'm not sure. He'll let Rin handle her.xD

Do you know what would be really interesting?
If Tsukumo starts worshiping Bon after he saves her life. Izumo's face would be priceless.*.*
This could become a new gag in the manga!

and I'm pretty sure we'll see Tsukumo. :)
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: Kaibutsu on November 26, 2013, 06:06:03 AM
But Tsukumo shouldn't be as young as Usamaro, right?
I think she would be about 10, if not older.


The next chapter is so close, yet so far away! At least this week will pass quickly because of the holiday...
But I worry a bit... the average raw release day falls in the middle of the week so I might not be able to help translate it! :(
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: Toraii212 on November 26, 2013, 07:50:12 PM
well Usamaru is technically much older than Tsukumo.xD
but I don't know...I mean in the dream of Izuno Tsukumo looks quite young. And even if Tsukumo is now older I don't think she could be more than 9 or 10....we will se.:)

And don't worry we can wait! Or should I say I can wait?xD
holiday?you have holiday nowww?

Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread

Last month gave us way too many feels and we chose to avoid it by focusing in Unicorn+Arthur...

@Moon. trust Europe to make for a good waiting music... Wasn't this song covered by Ozzy or Black Sabbath?
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: Desktop Warrior on December 01, 2013, 12:22:39 AM
Looks like it'll be another flashback. Though I wonder if only part of the chapter will be a flashback, with the rest being some major development in the present.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: tardar-sauce on December 01, 2013, 01:09:18 AM
I AM READY FOR MORE FEELS. It is probably going to be a flashback. I hope there is some of the present mixed in because it has been reveal after reveal after reveal and I think AnE has never been better in a way.

Also waiting for Unicorn+Arthur to become a reality.

I'm not sure to be honest. I'll have to look it up if I remember.

Also waiting for Unicorn+Arthur to become a reality.

We should all just freaking spam Kato with like, 3 pictures drawn of Unicorn+Arthur by each of us and send them to her all in the same month. She'll have no idea what hit her x'D
And then she'll have no choice to make it reality!!

And don't forget Lighting x Yuri, that ship needs more love to sail.

Post by: tardar-sauce on December 01, 2013, 03:29:53 AM
The concept of Arthur riding around on a pet/familiar unicorn came up in another thread. Some of us became enthralled by the idea. It became a
pairing. People made art. It is becoming an inside joke. And it just fits so well.

We must have more art to send to Katou Kazue!

Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: MetallicArcher on December 01, 2013, 04:03:48 AM
I'm lost...what are you dragging me into?

It started because I dreamt that Arthur isn't an idiot, he is just acting and him and Lighting want to protect Rin and Yukio because Lighting was Yuri's long lost love.

We moved on to the Arthur thread and someone came up with the unicorn thing for him as a familiar (and there was art).

Now it's Arthur being Yuri's and Lighting's chaperone and we are gonna spam Kazue with Unicorn+Arthur until it goes canon or she sends paid-assassins to kill us all.

We didn't get any preview sketches from Kato's twitter this month (at least not for now and I don't think we will so close to the release date), which makes me wonder if those early sketches will somehow relate to this moth's chapter.

According to Jump SQ tweet, the magazine should be released on the 4th

Quote
SQ.新年1月号は12月4日発売!新連載『SECOND BRAIN』が巻頭カラー!センターカラーは『双星の陰陽師』『親愛なる殺し屋様』『1/11』『新テニスの王子様』『ToLOVEるダークネス』『CLAYMORE』の豪華6作品!/T

 I hope we get it sooner, but I have a feeling that we will get the raws tomorrow.. (it's the 3rd where I live, so by tomorrow I mean the 4th)
The previous issue was released on the 2nd, but we got the scans on the 1st, so there's hope!

Katou usually posts sketches after the official release of the magazine I believe?

^it's from chapter 50, the raws came out on the 2nd of Oct, I think the official release was the 3rd and so is the photo Katou posted..

Maybe I missed something but I don't think Katou posted anything for the previous chapter.. Anyway.. I think I'm getting off topic so I will stop haha..

I think the uke&mike sketch may have just been concept art rather than art she planned to put in a page: there may be speech bubbles but there are no clear panels. But who knows, its hard to tell, and its very satisfying anyway, with all that text.

Also - "Best 10  character anniversary pack" under the second Ao no Exorict special thing.

Hello, this is the first time I answer something.
Well, regarding the special, I think it is about a character guide or so I was told while some pages in Spanish. Remember that some time ago had said Kato-sensei was preparing a secret project of the manga, since those pages in Spanish said that was the secret project that was planned for February this year.
Excuse my bad English, I relied on google translator ;w;

Post by: evenwiththerain on January 04, 2014, 04:14:45 AM
oh ohmiya is right

the source talks about a secret project (that we've been discusing about) for ao no exorcist, it states to the december issue it was revealed that this 'new project' is about the first character book over the manga, which will have the tittle of 'Ao no Exorcist Supporter Gide' and it will be launched in Japan on February 4 of 2014

the book will include all the information on each characters and DEmons! and some good information about them that we may not know, i guess more info on them.

This issude will also talk about the structure of true cross academy, how much exorcists get paid and other details related to the world this story takes place.

now the popularity poll will also be included in this book along side a color gallery of potraits that has been issued as the cover of Jump Square, and previous years.

I mean that he doesn't spend wisely; doesn't save up for things or choose what's best to buy at that point or anything - I'm pretty sure it's: I want this, so I'm going to get it. Now.

@ Katohhhhhh
The SQ.2 Feb. issue release jump today. Blue Exorcist Episode 53 posted. Outcome of the sad dark past of Izumo. Popularity and voting results presented at the first page color, big posters at the 1-position character is attached separately from it. (People of school book also when it is good because it can be read followed by 12 volumes of books!)

The part in parentheses dosn't make sense, BUT apparently chapter 53 is going to be the ending of Izumo's past

Guys, I think I've found something interesting. It's not the raws, which is why I haven't made a new thread, but I believe someone in Japan already has the new chapter and was blogging about it. A quick Google Translate suggested this person was summarizing the new chapter. However, since I don't know Japanese myself, I wonder if someone else could clarify what the blogger is talking about...

that's very true, but im glad either way. This would be a first for me, where the chapter comes out before the raws, its like naruto and bleach, where you hardly get anything before its out.

Looks like Izumo gave Tsukumo in adoption in an attempt to protect her, with Maria's help who seems to feel guilty when she sees what they are doing to Tamamo. But then Maria feels guilty for betraying Lucifer and let's herself be killed by Pig Face as part of an experiment?

The lab is underground.

Does it say something about Shura?

I think some other soldiers try to rebel against Lucifer, too.

Shima goes pick up Izumo for her check up.

What if the family that adopted Tsukumo is Takara's?

If Izumo really gave Tsukumo in for adoption I'm going to cry for real
THIS IS JUST TOO SAD

I love Izumo even more now just give me the chapter already (╥﹏╥)(╥﹏╥)(╥﹏╥)
OHH And I found something a couple of days ago

Usually in Aoex manga, the first page after the cover page is the full artwork of the cover page, and I think for v.12 it's of Izumo crying
IT BROKE MY HEART!! KEEP IT UP KAZUE!
(╥﹏╥)

oh wow she does look like's crying, why would kazue do this!!!! Everyone else has a happy cover, but izumo is crying! OMG!
thanks majhoola for this, i wouldnt have noticed!

@metalicarcher
i kept on reading adoption everywhere and I assumed it had to do with Tsukumo, and something about betraying. Was it Maria? She did seem nice, she probably felt guilty.
and probably takara's family did adopt tsukumo, they are rich and from what we know, takara is the only one who has actually talked to her (that we know of)

i did a close up to the one kazue posted in twitter and i dont see her crying, could this one have been edited?

ahh what I meant is that the inside pic is of Izumo crying, not the cover pic
like here in Vol.7

Cover page

so they could have done something like this to Vol.12 too (I hope this is Kazue's drawing, and the art style of the tears is Kazue's so I think it's really her TvTTT)

Still no sign of chapter 53? (╯︵╰,)

I'm not sure if it's ok to tell you guys this (to not put too much weight on the cleaners and typesetters), but I got the raws from S2Scans and finished translating for quite a while already.

And, if you want a spoiler: now it's official they want Izumo to make her a host for the nine tails, not Lucifer.

Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: chinonamida on January 06, 2014, 09:32:08 AM
^What difference does it make in Japan or other countries?
Also, most people only take 1 or 2 days off during December. I don't think that's enough to make a chapter shorter. We don't get shorter chapters in February, so...
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: Wikkelsoee on January 06, 2014, 03:13:56 PM

Why did my computer have to die when the chapter is about to be out??????????????????????

I was expecting a delay because of New Year, Christmas isn't a holiday in Japan. They decorate and all, but it's more a thing to go out for dinner with your girlfriend, if I'm not wrong.

As long as the chapter actually comes out within the first few days of the month, I don't think I'll be ''moping'' as much as anticipating~

Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread

Oh! I thought you were afraid of being caught... XD. I understand preferring to read it all at once but I don't have the patience to wait for each volume to come out (and my country only recently made volume 3 available and that's at the capital city, manga over here is a bit hard to find).
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: facets-and-rainbows on January 30, 2014, 07:08:42 AM
XD Yeah, wanting to support the author is a big factor, but I'm not worried about getting caught (funny mental image of a SWAT team bursting in like "We know you're in there! We know you read that page of scanned manga that one time!") And if I only had access to the first three volumes I would have started supplementing them with scans a long time ago.

I'm excited for chapter 54 though. It's actually been a while since I had absolutely no idea what was going to happen next.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: MetallicArcher on January 30, 2014, 07:12:12 AM
I had a Pink Panter flashback...

I think it's safe to expect them to break into the main building with Mike and see for an underground entry to the basement. The question is what they will find at the basement. I can't imagine what kind of powers Renzou's boss and the German twin have.

I am betting demon blade, honestly.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: themoonlandian on January 30, 2014, 07:33:02 PM
Yeah, it looks like it's a hidden blade to me. Where that white part is on the handle I'm betting allows the handle to come off or something
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: Toraii212 on January 30, 2014, 07:42:09 PM
but it's pretty thin, don't you think? anyway I think it's a demon blade too.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: MetallicArcher on January 30, 2014, 09:23:00 PM
Yes, that's probably a union between the handle and the sheath.

Some sword are really thin. Though I'm curious on that, if it is a sword, why carrying it like that. In other series where swords are being carried like staffs they play the role of a walking stick, but she carried it behind her back. Unless she either inherited it from someone who used the staff form... or the power needs an special kind of wood to be contained.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: tardar-sauce on January 30, 2014, 11:44:16 PM
That second option actually sounds cool. Maybe it is earth-themed?
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: MetallicArcher on January 31, 2014, 01:29:03 AM
That might even be the real form of the sword. Staff have been used as weapons, so, why not? If she is an earth bender I want her to fight Shiemi, do not ask me why.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: tardar-sauce on January 31, 2014, 02:07:42 AM
The staff could be demonic. She doesn't need to have magic powers.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: MetallicArcher on January 31, 2014, 02:10:02 AM
When I said earth bender I meant in the sense that the staff gives her that power not that it is her own.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: tardar-sauce on January 31, 2014, 02:17:59 AM
Yep, I gathered that and I agree with you. But at first we all thought she didn't need the staff.

Yeah. I've started checking.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: themoonlandian on March 28, 2014, 06:11:10 PM
I hope so, too. I mean, we have the Izumo thing going on, the zombie pit, and Rin in the room, and wherever Yukio went. I don't see how you couldn't have much going on unless she decided to further the cliffhanger and have it focus on Mephisto pretty much the whole time.
But if if comes out before Monday I won't be able to focus one bit D:

If it comes out a week early next month I'm going to wonder why April is so special.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: Elaedan on March 28, 2014, 11:32:11 PM
^ I hope it comes before monday because on monday my entrance exam books for Uni are released and then I have to focus mostly on those! The chapter would invoke so much feels and thoughts that I would be unable to read properly xDD

But I doubt they let anything to slip at weekend, my bet is earliest would be on monday...

We generally get raws on the 2nd of each month, so I'm not expecting anything until Tuesday night at the earliest. That and if it comes out before Tuesday night, I wouldn't be able to help with translations anyway...

Only a few more days now. This looks like it's gonna be a good one!

Fingers crossed that this isn't the last chapter for 2 months though. Doesn't Kato normally take a break around this time? If she ends it on a cliffhanger than goes on hiatus I might crumple >.<
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: NeeNee on April 28, 2014, 10:54:58 PM
That would be hilarious. I'm feeling mean.

But yeah, I hope she at least lets the exwires out of the cages. I don't really mind if Rin still has to fight a couple of zombies afterwards, but I want to know the fate of the humans at least.

Chino, does there read when the next chapter comes? Does it continue on July's issue or is there A break?
And if it is about Kokeno, does he survive or what? Is the zombie still alive in the end of chapter?
Well, naked Lucifer in last chapter has to keep me going~

have to say that I am little disappointed even I might grow to like Koneko more if his character grow is more interesting, but atm he is less interesting to me than other ExWires sorry.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: themoonlandian on May 01, 2014, 06:00:43 PM
I'm not sure what to feel about a Koneko chapter - I love it since he finally is getting some spotlight and development but then we don't know what happened to the rest D:
But, I like what Chino said that if Koneko doesn't know what's happening we share his fear.

Still....I'm hating how we don't have much to discuss in these newer chapters. I'm hoping there is more to the chapter than chino thinks!

Thank you for hints for a new chapter, Chino!

Tho I don't know if I like them. I mean, I'd love to see more Konekomaru because he didn't get much attention. But why during this arc?
We just got Takara and Renzo revealing themselves, we got backstory of Izumo, Illuminatis were introduced, we met new characters (couting Rin's brother, what's hella important, right?), moreover exwires and Yukio are in Illuminati's place what leads to the meeting with Toudou (so more fricking fracking with Yukio's mind, yaaay~). MOREOVER Paku said Shiemi to think about Okumuras, goddamnit THIS ARC IS FULL

I'm afraid that Katou will show us everything in this and next arcs and then we'll have no riddles about main characters/exwires. Of course we have always Shiro and Mephisto and many others, but if I were Katou I wouldn't put THAT MUCH into one arc.

I absolutely cannot wait for this chapter. Konekomaru is actually one of my favorite characters, so a chapter that finally focuses on him sounds incredible to me! Who knows if I'll be able to translate it this month, thanks to final exams coming up over the next few weeks.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: sand dragon on May 01, 2014, 07:12:46 PM
I thought Koneko needs development for a long time now, so I hope I will like this chapter. One of the things I like about AnE is that almost every character develops so I'm glad that Koneko geys his own spotlight.
The almost no action part disappoint me, though. How long Kazue is going to keep us waiting? I hope she has the whole arc planned and isn't just buying time.

'Is done justice' may also refer to that it is loyal to his character...? Or that the chapter of him is good..? I still doubt that he will be killed though. Just doesn't feel the kind of character Katou would 'get rid of'...


But yes thanks for hints! Still I want that it is already next month because I need action to the plot, thorougly soon the describing in great and I love te deepness of the series but... Waiting months is A pain...

I have A mighty need to see the raws.

Did I say something stupid? D:



Well, IF Koneko is going to die (big if because I decide after I see the chapter myself), it will at least make Shima propably go through some character development. They were childhood friends so I think Shima HAS to feel something at least. And maybe it triggers character growing for him, now when I think of it he hasn't got his own. Kyoto was about Ryuuji and Rin (and Yukio and Shiemi?) and this one is of Izumo + unknown other parties (too early to know who will be important in this arc yet)...

Or he will be fine/saved in July's issue and this is just to keep readers interested (again) without putting another cliff-hanger.

I WOULD MUCH RATHER THE RAWS WERE PUBLIC. I WANT TO WORK ON THE CHAPTER TOO. (I didn’t know they were in until Chino said that. Chino’s also a liar in the sense that -Koneko- is not in trouble. Koneko kicked massive ass. Something -bothers- me about Yukio in his scenes, he is too calm and it’s eerie. The cliffhanger is on another character.)

Keep in mind I can’t read the TL.

Surviving that thing is quite kick ass when you think it is Koneko who did it. None of us was giving 2 cents on his fairing even slightly well against that monster.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: earthforge on May 02, 2014, 12:45:09 AM
I don't know. It feels like a drawn out boring scenario for a boring character. Koneko as a personality I like, but with the situation he is in right now, just no. He should be zombie meat by now, no matter how much he has a character arc before getting nommed. The only possible out I can see is if Rin or Yukio do some sort of Satanic override of all of the zombies so that they all run away.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: Isis-Lied on May 02, 2014, 01:07:31 AM
I'm neutral when it comes to Koneko; though I can't say I mind some character development though I really want the story to pick up! I'm worried about Izumo! I just hope Katou isn't stalling as other people have mentioned :/
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: MetallicArcher on May 02, 2014, 01:11:45 AM
I think Koneko being forced to fight for his life will be good for his character. He himself told Rin during the 7 Mysteries Arc he needed to stop charging first full force and let them fight on their own otherwise they would be weak when they couldn't count on him. Now that thye are in this situation, I have to wonder if it wasn't foreshadowing.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: chaotickairos on May 02, 2014, 01:47:36 AM
Huh, it's interesting that so many people on here seem to dislike Koneko. I guess it's probably how he was the one who was the most afraid of Rin after the big son of Satan reveal. I actually always liked him, mostly because I like characters like him who are obviously flawed and weak (physically weak, can be scared, obviously has issues stemming from his parents' deaths during the Blue Night) but still continue to overcome them and fight for what they believe in even if they know they don't have a chance. Also, the team really does need someone to yell at them and point out their flaws every once and a while.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: NeeNee on May 02, 2014, 01:57:38 AM
I think it's just because he doesn't stand out much, so people perceive him as boring.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread

Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: Kaibutsu on May 02, 2014, 02:43:48 AM
Between Koneko and Shiemi, at least Shiemi fulfills the "primary love interest" category. Koneko is very...bland? He had a couple of moments in the last few arcs, that kinda-sorta-ish showed character development, but compared to everyone else, he's grown the least. I'm glad he's getting some development this month. My annoyance with him (and Shiemi and Bon and earlier Shima) stems from the fact that I think Katou is overlooking just how weak half of the main cast is. I'm afraid sometime soon the characters will be put into even more dangerous situations and will have to pull deus ex machina to survive. Once of twice is okay. Once or twice getting saved by MC is okay. But Shiemi, by herself, is probably into the hundreds on that, and the Kyoto-trio aren't far behind. Except Shima turned out to be not as weak, albeit a traitor, and Bon is at least physically stronger than Koneko. In the current situation, I can't think of any plausible way that Shiemi, Bon and Koneko can escape their situations without being conveniently rescued by someone or other. Given AnE's world, outside of the current story, I'm starting to get frustrated with the plausibility of half the characters, since they are so ridiculously weak, but are still getting continuously put in missions that would probably be difficult for even stronger characters (Shura, Angel, Lewin).

Time has been passing pretty fast for me, probably because I'm so head over heals into Magi right now (oh, and school finals, i guess...) so the wait between chapters doesn't seem to long for me... Besides, the 4th is a Sunday this month, so won't Viz translations be out Monday, anyway??
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: SKL on May 02, 2014, 02:48:23 AM
Koneko does bore me. No doubt about that. Although I know that I will respect his character in retrospect upon completion of the story. Only then could I appreciate his contribution to a full and well fleshed-out story. Until then, I will continue to bemoan him for eating up chapter space.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread

Well, it appears to be a rough summary of the chapter. Of course google translate does a good job of turning it into gibberish. I'm not going to translate it, because it will take a lot of work, and I probably wont finish it before the raws, or even the translation comes out. (Also, final exams.) It sounds like what would be accurate, but since I haven't seen the raws yet, I don't know.

Title : "Early moments/beginning of a campaign?

Something about Yukio. Konekomaru has to physically fight to survive. He thinks about Renzou.

He noticed venting in the ceiling of the cage and wondered why they were there.

He escapes through a pipe and seems to meet up with Kuro.

He seems to access the room Yukio is caged in through the ventilation.

There seems to be defects in the zombies regenerative abilities. These ones seems to assimilate things that come into contact with their open wounds when they are healing?

Yukio seems to have figured them out and used them against his zombie.

Something about Pig Face and Renzou.

Bon attacks the zombie with his bazooka.

Monitors? Rin?

Pretty much yes.

Chino's screwing with you, Koneko's completely safe by the end of the chapter, and the first to have broken free of the cages.

Btw, Yukio is really intelligent, someone would call maybe 'genious' - it was a big deal at the beginning and how he was the youngest to take exorcist exam etc. Point is, I feel that it would be cool to show that side of him more often. It feels like others (like Koneko) are catching up...
(ofc if he has figured out already the weak point of zombies, but still... I don't know how to describe the feeling...)

As spoilers go, koneko finds yukio intending to tell him, but yukio already figured it out... and way before him it seems. Then koneko offers to help him, but yukio replies he'll be fine on his own and orders koneko to instead go confirm the situation of the others and come back report to him. All the while yukio is perfectly composed and koneko is visibly scared. So koneko feels pretty small in comparison.

Also koneko doesn't go through the vent. He just speaks through it.

I think it's a shame you now know koneko eventually gets out through the pipe and meet kuro. Because before that, there's a scene where he's truly hopeless. At that moment I was really concerned about him, you won't...
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: MetallicArcher on May 02, 2014, 03:16:26 PM
Well, Yukio is years ahead of Koneko in training terms, I think he has better chances than the rest of the exwires to keep his head cool and successfully analize a situation. Also, he had a weapon that didn't require him to get close to the zombie to harm it. And he has better physical training to avoid attacks.

^ I agree, although I'm a bit worried we're going to have the next few chapters go through each of the characters starting with Koneko this month - like Shiemi, then Bon and so on. I hope not. Then again, the IK arc also had a really slow built up, with loads of the middle chapters which didn't really accomplish anything. The climax was amazing though, so we might be in for a long build up, but that's fine so long as it pays off in the end
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread

Well, the summary implies that by the end of the chapter Yukio's fight is also almost done for.

This. I'm a patient person so i'd rather have the raws, and wait for the scanlations. Though, it doesn't seem like ao-ex raws will be leaked as often now. =/
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: tardar-sauce on May 12, 2014, 10:08:50 AM
Yeah I really wish the raws had been leaked for the rest of you. What you're - and the translators are doing is a good thing, it tides people over before the proper release.

We didn't have anything to do with the lack of raws. =.=

Which should be faster now that the S2s admin is rejoining, and will handle either typesetting or cleaning. Instead of making me do everything when I don't even have the time to do it all! (I even redrew half of this chapter! So I did three jobs!)

But as Nee said, I would be happy with raws because seeing them is enough for me.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: tardar-sauce on May 12, 2014, 04:04:51 PM
Yeah. (Still, from our side raws aren't leakable. Major faux pas right there.)
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: GolPhee on May 12, 2014, 04:20:52 PM
That's something I've always been curious about. Where do the raws initially come from? The slower releasing groups just buy the tankobon volumes and scan them, but do the weekly/monthly raws come from Japanese fans who scan bought copies, or are they leaked some other way? I'm curious because teams often seem to receive the raws even before the chapter is published in Japan.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: tardar-sauce on May 12, 2014, 05:08:00 PM
Yep, they're all bought copies. All of them. Some stores sell the magazines early, that's how the raws get leaked.

Inorite?

I feel like this chapter barely squeaked by for me because I'm starting to see how Koneko could be awesome. I mean, in this chapter he was the Gordon Freeman of AnE with a tokkosho instead of a crowbar. However, he was waaaay to self-aware of being a "side character". That just broke the drama.

But we're getting into Bon and... if the next chapter is just about Bon then I will eat my pillow. A bazooka? Seriously? Any self-respecting gamer knows that you NEVER use a rocket launcher in a tiny enclosed space.

There was some buddhist character on the rocket and it was written true cross knight order on the launcher.
I guess Katou can always get away by saying it's some special type of bazooka that's more or less like a real one.

Well, even if next month chapter is uneventful, there's still the salaryman exorcist that's going to come out eventually.
There are five of them. And they're pretty fun.
We see Izumo's smiling face, that, and Yukio is having a hard time with Arthur. My snapshots are misleading.
Also, don't be sad you don't have the raws. For some parts you wouldn't understand anything with the images alone.

Well, where it last left off made it seem like it'll be focused on Suguro, but considering that he has a bazooka to fight the zombie with I don't think the fight will last long, so maybe we'll have more story progression?
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: Isis-Lied on May 27, 2014, 01:30:16 AM
Gosh, I hope so. It'd be horrible if Shiemi's fate was still undecided two chapters later. And I doubt Kazue would do that. I wonder if we'll get a Bon and Shima confrontation as it's something I'm looking for. Oh, and that Bon doesn't set himself on fire with his bazooka :P I hope we see Rin again, but I wouldn't be too surprised if he didn't show up again considering how chaotic the current events are. If we're lucky Pig Face might even be killed by Lucy next chap
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: DreamDemon890 on May 27, 2014, 02:27:58 AM
I wanna see Bon's hair on fire now ._.
I just hope we get to see Kuro fighting that ugly zombie thing! Especially since he's hungry! But I doubt we'll see that at all.
Like, what if Kuro eats the zombie, will it heal up inside of him and fuse with his insides?
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: tardar-sauce on May 27, 2014, 04:29:09 AM
I want to see Kuro fighting, period. I want to see what he can do. He's supposed to be high class (how are those ranks decided anyway?) Think he was weakened by losing his fang?

I bet we are going to see Rin deal with his moral issues (which will be really interesting!), get pressed into killing it, and then that part's done. Hopefully Shiemi wakes up in the nick of time too.

The question still stands about Shiemi and if Katou is willing to kill her. I'm going to keep saying that until we find her alive, because Katou said she'd make the story even darker than this.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: Elaedan on May 27, 2014, 11:21:08 AM
I highly doubt that the one being killed would be Shiemi - she was introduced earlier than others and seems to be that kind of girl character not to get killed... Though I wouldn't mind Kazue surprising me.

I want to see Rin and get story progress (I have repeated this too many times...), I feel plot has gone little slow even I like that it takes time to describe everything in detail but waiting for month after month is starting to make me impatient. So if not anything else then please, make story go forward~
Kuro and Koneko got one chapter, so would be cool to see others again...

^I also don't see anything about it on her Twitter, and she's retweeted stuff pretty recently. I think the previous chapter ended with a note that the next one would come out this issue, so I hope nothing bad happened in between then and now!

I'm taking the thread's word for it, since it's usually 99% accurate.

Also for anyone who may be confused: issues are named after the month that comes after the month when they come out: 07 issue = 'july issue' = 'july issue' comes out in june.

Either way, I would be happy to be proven wrong - another month's wait is a long time.

That's weird. She's been on her twitter recently, so it's not like she's been suddenly taken ill or something. It's odd that it hasn't been officially mentioned anywhere.

That is weird.  Though I think Katou did take a break around this time last year.
The last panel of the last chapter says the next chapter will be in the July issue (released June), unless that was just an assumption?

Post by: Desktop Warrior on May 31, 2014, 10:16:25 PM
Aki, each issue of Jump Square is marked for the month after it. For example, the "July" issue actually comes out on or around June 1st. From what I heard, this was done in case the magazine was released late, in which case the marked month would correspond with the later release date.

Personally, I think the posts on that other forum are anything BUT reliable. There's no information or explanation other than "Blue Exorcist: absent" (or something of the sort). I refuse to believe anything unless there's an official announcement, or the chapter simply doesn't show up in the magazine this year.

Post by: aki on May 31, 2014, 11:14:45 PM
I know, that's why I put "released June."  :P

I've tried searching other forums for anything about the next issue.  Not sure how reliable it is, but this post (http://www.arlongpark.net/showthread.php?t=28240&page=424&p=3236157&viewfull=1#post3236157) is also saying Blue Exorcist will be absent.  But at least we'll get a nice center color for the issue afterwards. 
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: themoonlandian on May 31, 2014, 11:20:36 PM
But where are they getting the info that it is absent if it's not even on Katou's twitter?
And didn't the last time she took a month off it said it'd be released in the issue after the usual it would be in? (I can't remember if it was the same months as now or not).
I still think there will be a chapter unless we get more evidence that's not just ''it'll be absent'' on some forum posts. For all we know, one person got false info and it's spread.

I'm not seeing anything from official sources yet, but Googling "Jump SQ July issue" in Japanese turned up one blog post that gave summaries for a couple other series and said Blue Exorcist was off this month.

http://guutaranikki.blog4.fc2.com/blog-entry-10270.html (http://guutaranikki.blog4.fc2.com/blog-entry-10270.html) (It's the second blue heading, with one line of text under it)

So that's two unofficial sources...I'm guessing Jump SQ's website will update later today (it's midnight on the 4th there right now) so we'll know for sure then.

Oddly enough, just like some here said, I'm not too upset about it. I feel like I can keep in in the back of my head for another month.

And I'm also hoping next month's chapter will be a tad longer and will indeed end the cliffhangers of the exwires as well. Koneko and Yukio did it pretty fast, so anymore than one chapter is too long I think.

Post by: Kaibutsu on June 04, 2014, 04:08:28 AM
Idk if I mentioned it but I recently got volumes 6-10 in english. Rereading them I realized that AnE is best read in bulk, volume by volume. I would say there's one chapter per volume that's action/info/plot packed and everything else is in-between and filler-y. It's what makes the monthly wait feel like a drag to me, since i noticed that we have a chapter deep discussion worthy once every few months. I'm not ashamed to admit that Shima's betrayal/Lucifer's appearance chapters were what pulled me back in because the few chapters before that were so slow I put myself behind in AnE for almost a year... I wonder if I might just wait for a few more months and then catch up in bulk again... hm...
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: MetallicArcher on June 04, 2014, 04:16:15 AM
Congrats on getting yourself the volumes! I was all obvr the place when I got just 2 of the early ones, I can't imagine having 4 of the latest ones.

I dunno, I think the reading per bunch allies to all mangas. It might be just me cause I often pick up series that have been going for a while and catch up to be able to join discussions at forums. I personally couldn't abstain from reading each update once I have cached up. I tried to do it with Bleach and I just went back to it before even a week. I do like re-reading bunches of chapters all together, particularly after the closing of an arc or sequence.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: facets-and-rainbows on June 04, 2014, 05:30:17 AM
I usually read things in tankoubon form because of that (currently only reading the Blue Exorcist Jump SQ chapters so I can actually talk to you guys about the series ;D).

Though I do remember when I first caught up with Blue Exorcist (all at once right around when volume 7 came out) and then had to wait nine months for Volume 8. The release date wasn't even announced until I'd already been waiting six months ("April 4th? APRIL?! You could make an entire human baby in the time it's taking to make this book")...Volume 7 ended with Yukio stumbling on Toudou in the woods and Toudou telling him to come out of the bushes already...That was rough DX

So there is officaly no chapter this month? Too bad, but since we got the last chapter later than usual the wait dosen't seem taht long...
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: NeeNee on June 05, 2014, 09:54:37 PM
I usually read things in tankoubon form because of that (currently only reading the Blue Exorcist Jump SQ chapters so I can actually talk to you guys about the series ;D).

Yeah, I usually read tankobon too. Blue Exorcist is the only manga I'm following monthly, because I want to be able to discuss the chapters online.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: NeeNee on June 20, 2014, 08:01:11 PM
One more week, if we're lucky.

This new chapter better be long.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: Elaedan on June 20, 2014, 08:15:09 PM
One more week, if we're lucky.

This new chapter better be long.

I totally agree!! And if it's not long, then please let there happen some interesting things (but please, not more cliffhangers...). This waiting has almost drawn me nuts ^^"\

*fingers crossed that chapter comes fast and is good*
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: GolPhee on June 20, 2014, 08:43:05 PM
I pray that Katou treats last month as her "holiday month", and doesn't take this one off too. I might crumple into depression-dust if we have to wait another month. At the very least, the last chapter didn't end on a massive cliffhanger - there's certainly a lot that needs to happen next chapter, but nothing that we can't wait a few more days for. Fingers crossed!
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: NeeNee on June 23, 2014, 12:37:24 AM
When does she usually take her holiday?
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: GolPhee on June 23, 2014, 11:06:55 AM
Last year it was June - in other words the same time we missed a chapter this year. But last year's break was official, so I assume she intended to take July off this year for the summer break. We knew around the 31st May that we wouldn't be getting a chapter though, so it's only a few more days before we know one way or the other.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: facets-and-rainbows on June 23, 2014, 04:14:08 PM
The Jump SQ website's page for the next issue is listing Blue Exorcist with a center color page, so they're at least planning to have a chapter this month.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: GolPhee on June 23, 2014, 04:41:25 PM
That's definitely good news! I wonder why it was called off last minute this month. Do you think Katou just got behind with it?
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: NeeNee on June 23, 2014, 08:12:32 PM
I think so. If she fell ill or something like that, there would've been no reason they couldn't tell us.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: MetallicArcher on June 23, 2014, 10:04:27 PM
Maybe she was granted the colour spread to late in the month and couldn't get it done with all the extra work load of the stage play?
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: Desktop Warrior on June 23, 2014, 11:09:44 PM
My theory is that Katou likely just got tired of working on this manga day in and day out - she is only human, after all - and after a particularly bad day, decided that she needed a break and made phone calls to the appropriate people informing them of the delay.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: NeeNee on June 23, 2014, 11:25:35 PM
^ In that case, why didn't she just take a month off like she did last year around this time?

Why decide so last minute that they couldn't even mention it in the previous volume?
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: MetallicArcher on June 24, 2014, 01:33:53 AM
Or maybe it was something to do with her family life? If it is because of something that happened to a husband/child/parent/whatever it would makw sense for her to not make comments on it.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: Elaedan on June 24, 2014, 07:34:26 AM
Yup, I think I this wasnt planned absence - Katou would have announced it earlier and news would have spread faster. This break came "out of nowhere", and it seems she has worked this month (and also previous one) so it might still be that she takes her holiday? Or if the break was planned, why SQ didn't know of it sooner and kept AnE listed so long?
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: Kenneth245 on June 24, 2014, 08:28:00 AM
I don't really mind. She's been delivering chapter after chapter for each month, and all have been pretty good. The Stage Play might have something to do with her little break this month. Though, I agree that it would've been better to have announced it beforehand.

I just hope that these small zombie battles end, or that she surprises us with something unexpected.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: Breakingchains49 on June 24, 2014, 02:03:34 PM
The reason why Kato did this was to take a break guys. She finished the chapter and it was supposed to be realased last month but someone may have wanted her to take a break and work on the play (and even watch it). I'm 100% sure she wanted to see her live creation, and it ends on the 29th and if she was working she wouldn't be able to see it. And she did look over the play saying the director was following it correctly......

Claymore forums only have fake spoilers atm, but AnE is confirmed this month as per the table of contents. We also get center color (?) this month and cover in august: http://mangahelpers.com/forum/showthread.php/16389-Jump-SQ-%28Shueisha%29/page134

but no news about d.gray-man

i don't really follow anything else in SQ at the moment, so I have no other forums I can go to look for info.

This wait is killing me.... But glad to know that itse are getting cover on August, Kazue might not be having A break and we see also chapter 58 soon enough!


Jump SQ August (=this July's number) is listed to be published this Friday 4.7.2014.

Aaah it's so close to being legible that's so meeeaaaaaan

I stated at it for like ten minutes and managed to convince myself that the speech bubble on the bottom right starts with 出雲ちゃん 九尾の適合確率 ("Izumo-chan's compatibility with the Nine-Tails") and the one on the bottom left contains a しはるんやったら ("If you/they are going to...")

Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: cottontailcake on July 27, 2014, 12:55:46 AM
The problem with zombies is they just feel like filler to me. There doesn't seem to be any real revelations to be had with zombies, except for Rin's apparent sympathy crisis. Well, we got lots of Ryuuji, but I don't feel that we needed zombies for that.

All I can say is that this chapter had better see the last of them! Though I would like them to stay relevant to what's happening. That would make me feel a little better towards all the zombie chapters.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: NeeNee on July 27, 2014, 01:00:47 AM
I didn't mind the zombies. It's just been too long since we saw anything new (as opposed to "Continuation of the battle last chapter").

But that's also because we read it in chapters. In the printed volumes, those few chapters probably won't seem that long.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: earthforge on July 27, 2014, 01:49:23 AM
Yeah, the zombie stuff is just so Kazue can express her fondness for TWD. Which is cool, but god I am so bored. All we get of Yukio, my one hope for juicy drama, is some bitchy remarks. And it looks like next month we'll be getting Renzou and Koneko for the most part. Let's just hope Gedouin bites the dust this month or next. I am so motherflipping sick of cardboard cut out scientist villains. Actually, more just sick of mad scientist villains. They always get the short end of the stick, with the most cackling generic evil motives.

To avoid my disappointment, I am busy following liveblogs for upcoming Marvel movies. I'm somewhat miffed that I'll see Age of Ultron spoilers sooner than ANE spoilers.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: SKL on July 27, 2014, 04:33:22 AM
I think I'll enjoy this arc a lot better in hindsight. It has the potential to be one of my favorites depending on how it ends. But for now I continue to feel anxious for plot advancement month by month. It just feels like we've been sitting in the same spot for ages now. While I know there is a lot going on and new material to be had, I still feel stuck in the zombie-rut. -end of spoiler whining

What I hope for this chapter: the exwire crew to reach Izumo. I'm also curious on what pigface has to say to them. Will he sick a hoard of zombies on them and continue to giggle in sadistic delight? Will he rub Renzou's betrayal in their faces? Will he strike a personal conversation with one or both of the Okumura's a la drama?

Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: GolPhee on July 27, 2014, 12:56:15 PM
Ah Kazue, that was mean! Well at least the first Monday of next month is also SQ's release date, which means the official Viz version will be released on the 4th. Not too long to wait!
Renzou, hurry up and backstory! I cannot pass judgement on you without backstory, and it's driving me crazy!

Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: GolPhee on July 28, 2014, 08:08:44 AM
^ Actually in fairness, Viz Shonen Weekly is normally fairly reliable. It's just that their release date is the nearest Monday after the Japanese release, which is on the 4th. So if the 4th happens to be a Monday, we get it on the same day. If the 4th is a Sunday, we get it the next day. But if the 4th is a Tuesday we have to wait all week.
They might disappoint us and hold it off until the following week, but it hasn't happened so far, so fingers crossed! Its just a shame we don't get early raws uploaded anymore :(

Haha, hatemail from the fans!
I guess looking back, the IK arc took a loooong time to conclude - there were so many chapters with people just sitting around discussing things, most of it not even to do with the exwires.
But we know that this chapter will have a Geduin confrontation of sorts, and at least one guaranteed Shima monologue (Not sure what it's about yet though).

Why do you guys keep complaining, YES it is a long wait for a new chapter, and everyone keeps saying its slow but it isn't. When i read the Impure King i breezed right through it cause i read straight through the volumes, and it took way longer for something (action) to happen unlike now. Its almost inevitable we will get action(in 59), but progression is just your perception time.I think the pacing is extremely well in this arc and I'm sure this arc will be over before Spring of 2015

Post by: NeeNee on July 28, 2014, 10:26:39 PM
We're complaining because we're bored.

I know the pacing won't be bad once I read it in the tankobon, but that's the curse of monthly manga, you know? You spend a lot of time waiting for new chapters, so then you want a lot to happen.

"We're complaining because we're bored." Lol, so true.

I'll just be happy if translations are public and released with the chapter (reading translation lines on raws is not the best way to read, you know!)

Weren't there times when the raws were released on Monday and the VIZ version wasn't though?

Chapter 54,55,and 58 were boring I STRONGLY DISAGREE, honestly i dont know how you've read the series this long........... I'd say this could be the best Kato has done, and if this is boring you, i dont know why you guys the series so much(no disrespect to you guys just wondering :))

I was just thinking about how I don't mind the zombie fights at all--I'm still enjoying/looking forward to them, in fact--and then it hit me. It's not just because I'm used to reading the tankoubon and a month feels like nothing when I'm waiting for new plot. It's also because I'm used to reading the Naruto tankoubon, where they've literally been fighting the undead in a weekly manga since 2011. As in, the Naruto zombie fight is currently two volumes longer than all of Blue Exorcist. :o
I've probably just lost the ability to even be annoyed at a slow plot. So as long as the zombie fights aren't still going in 2015, I'm probably fine oh god what has Naruto done to me.

...I still need the new chapter like I need air, though. *pleaseletthereberawspleaseletthereberawspleaseletthereberaws*

Oh boy. Naruto's pacing is so unspeakably awfull, it's no wonder its popularity is decreasing even among the hardcore fans. Of course, Kato's pacing is actually really good, one of the best of shonen I'd say. But when the story you get is such a good one, it's hard not to complain from time to time just because we want mooore XD

Post by: Desktop Warrior on July 29, 2014, 03:14:44 PM
Oh, right, I keep forgetting the new chapter will be out soon!

Unpopular opinion, but I felt like there was more variety in the Impure King Arc. It may have been because I read the whole thing at once, but it felt like each chapter built up from the next, you know? And there was more involvement from the rest of the Order/Myou Dha. This arc seems incredibly contrived. I'm more than ready for these zombie fights to be over and see some real plot advancement.

Though it looks like that'll be the case now that Pig Face has revealed himself openly to the ExWires.

Because I'm a notorious pessimist.

In all honesty, though, I'm very patient for this chapter. It was last year (around Ch. 48-49) that I was checking constantly and couldn't wait, though that was probably because of NaNo. I was writing an AnE fic. This time...I don't know, I'm not exactly chomping at the bit for more of this arc.

These chapters are getting later and later and the drama just ain't delivering. I get that we can't have interesting things like Renzou's betrayal every month, but everything right now is just so goddamned predictable. Izumo rejects help, Izumo intends to control Nine Tails, Izumo will spectacularly fail because the Nine Tails will find the weakness in her heart instantly, and then we'll have a good ol' I Know You're In There Somewhere Fight. Gedouin bites the dust somewhere in this parellation. Rin has a "no I must save the deformed-beyond-saving-mutated-"so goddamned obvious they want to be put out of their misery" blob monsters" complex. Which we really don't care about because these are the usual monster mooks to be killed off.

Sadly, I agree with earthforge. Lately I've realised that it only becomes interesting if the higher-ups from the Order is involved (but IF they are, I'll start dancing like a cat with a ribbon). Sure, Renzou's betrayal was a suprise, but what they're doing is just all too predictable now and honestly I'm getting a bit tired of Rin's whining

But every manga has its ups and downs. I have no doubt it'll get better.

OK, i kinda agree , but Rin IS NOT WHINING. just because he wont kill something forced in to demonhood. THEY HAVE A HUMAN CONSCIOUS. plus bon nor shiemi, nor rin want to MURDER THEM. its just rin has no clean way to do it like the others

Shiemi buried it. AKA asphyxiation. Bon did some kind of talking them to non-hostility -- which is still leaving em in a form of living hell. Neither of these ways are "clean".

They were humans. Now they're Eldritch Abominations. This is a classic fantasy situation in which mercy-killing the enemy is entirely acceptable.

When somebody knows more details, let me know. I need the translations!!!

I think that the plot is really good atm. I know how it might feel for those who think the plot is too predictable but for me AnE is still the best manga around and I can't wait for monthly updates. I also know some parts of this manga is best to read in tankouban form. But from objective view the plot feels "whole" and needs the slower parts as well as faster ones (still I won't anknowledge the Kraken arc).

Can't wait to see Rin within punching distance of Gedouin.

Post by: chinonamida on September 28, 2014, 03:52:35 AM
We don't know much about what will happen to Renzou, Izumo and Lucifer. And what will happen to each of them can completely change the course of the story. I guess everyone is waiting to see the end of the arc before discussing further.
I just hope it wont be a standstill.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: NeeNee on September 28, 2014, 06:49:05 PM
I think there's a pretty good chance we'll be ending on a cliffhanger again. This is pretty much the finale of the arc.

But at long as there's some decent progress first (Pig barbecue, anyone? ;D), I don't really mind.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: Elaedan on September 29, 2014, 08:20:02 AM
^Sorry, studies have kept me so busy that I haven't been able to comment...

This has been quite A long arc already so like you say this might be the finale. But I still wait kind of more "proper or obvious" character development and spoilers. Plus it would be epic if the Final battle was long and the scenery would change - Illuminati lab isn't enough I wish those zombies dead and Face-to-Face combat in vast area. But I doubt Luci and other High Illuminati members can't sit quiet while the kids (and Pig Face) ruin their plan.

(I know that Luci said that Rin should be returned but wouldn't it be cool if he stayed imprisont? Or the battle would go to Gehenna? Well maybe in future, I shouldn't be too hasty.)
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: GolPhee on September 29, 2014, 10:14:30 AM
I highly doubt the arc is nearing its end just yet. Given the pace that things have progressed at so far, I doubt there'll be any sort of conclusion to the current battle (Rin vs Pig Face) in the next chapter, and we still have to defeat not only the zombie glob, but also Shima and Lucifer. I also have a sneaky suspicion that there may be a Todou appearance at some point in this arc too.

I'm seriously pumped for this chapter though! Whatever happens, it's gonna be awesome!
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: MetallicArcher on September 29, 2014, 01:38:30 PM
The main reason I think the finale needs to rush is Izumo's condition. She is dying. They need to exorcise the kkyubi from her fast or she needs to gain control of it.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: themoonlandian on September 29, 2014, 07:18:02 PM
I keep meaning to reply to a few things but my brain's energy seems to flop down when I try to discuss anything lately so *shrugs*

I don't think the arc's been too long (still felt a bit rushed soo) - but I agree with Archer that this should finish up soon for the sake of Izumo.
Afterwards I feel like there's going to be a lot happening, even if the decide to boot it out of the Illuminati.

I'm really hoping to see more of Bon and Koneko's side of this, along with how Shura's doing and the Academy.

Plus..kinda haven't felt as excited for new chapters. It all seems so easy to expect what will happen.
Trying to hope that Katou will pull something epic next chapter Like kyuubi beating up Rin before Izumo manages to regain control or something

So it has come to that time of the month again... Last chapter was released around the 9th right ? So I wouldn't hope for anything before the 9th this time. This way, the waiting might be more bearable. Maybe.

(urgh, but what am I doing looking around here the 2nd then?!  :'()

Good luck, Elaedan!

Is AnE always the last one to be leaked? It seems like every time we hear of leaks it's Claymore first :'D
I think the longest wait we'd have if we don't get raws would be the sixth then, right? It's not that long of a wait but seeing raws soon would be nice
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: GolPhee on October 02, 2014, 06:20:48 PM
^ Don't worry, Poppy, the English version is out on the 6th - this Monday. As for the raws, they've been fluctuating a lot in the last few months, so it's anyone's guess when they'll be up but it could certainly be any time now.
Personally, I prefer getting the English version at the same time as/before the raws because it means that everyone can read and discuss the chapter at once. Those of us who hold out on the translations tend to have to go into hiding to avoid spoilers otherwise.

And good luck in your test, Elaedan!

I'm pretty sure that this means that Rin's got his demon ears because he released his sword. But we saw that at the end of last chapter. SO I'M STILL OKAY.

There is a new chapter this month, right? Please say yes.

A random thought that came to mind:
I wonder if the group will carry Tamamo's body with them or if they'll just leave her there? If they take her body back then they'd have to protect both her body and (presumably) Izumo.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: tardar-sauce on November 03, 2014, 12:07:10 AM
If it's a risk, then they most likely won't haul around her body. It's literally dead weight.

If it's a risk, then they most likely won't haul around her body. It's literally dead weight.

Yeah, that's why I was wondering. Part of me feels like they'll just escape without it (kinda forget about it, shonen-style) and part of me feels like that wouldn't be right and they'd try to bring her back or something. If I was Izumo, I wouldn't want to leave it. At least Shiro's body went into Gehenna (sort of like a burial...well, there wasn't much Rin could do about it at the time) and wasn't just left on the floor as the building came crumbling down.

Oh, could be. It's been a while so I can't remember. But if that's the case, it's even better that he got a proper burial. I just hope Izumo can have the same (or should I say Tamamo).

I can't believe it's still 3 weeks. The month is really long when the chapter comes out so early.

^ Good question.

I do believe we'll be getting a chapter, but I have no idea if it will be at the usual time.

Post by: GolPhee on December 14, 2014, 09:04:12 PM
On the positive side, it looks like MangaPanda have picked AoEx up again, and whilst their translations leave something to be desired at times, they are always consistently early with chapter releases. If they stick with it, we should get the next chapter at the beginning of the month rather than waiting until a week or more later

The Jump SQ site says the next issue comes out on January 5th, so the usual time (well, technically the 4th is the usual time, but it falls on a Sunday). Also the day volume 14 comes out! : )

Welcome, Catinator!

I'm more curious to see whether we'll see Yukio/co. confronting Shima's family about his betrayal. They might also get questioned by Grigori... Actually, there are quite a few things that I think need to be covered before we go back to their school and exam preparations.

Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: tardar-sauce on January 04, 2015, 06:37:11 AM
It's not about any particular need, it's a punishment and a way of saying 'you've fallen so low that we no longer consider you a part of our family.' Parents have disowned their children over lesser things (like sexuality doesn't match up to their beliefs, religion doesn't match up, the child committed a crime - big or small- or a transgression.)

If we're in the spoiler moping thread it means there are spoilers here and if sb doesn't want to read them they should't read the thread so spoiler tags are not necessary, right?

I always believed Shima is, if not a double agent, at least a good person who will end up on the good side eventually. So I don't expect this revelation so early in the arc. Maybe he works for someone whose motives are also unclear.

Well, even if he is what the spoilers say he is, I'm more amazed at just how good of a liar that guy is. I don't think he broke his facade even once since he knocked Izumo out during the festival. Seriously, like WOW.
Props for Kazue for not giving anything away too, haha.

Though if he is, he'd have had to be recruited before Toudou got to him, or right after.
There's also a chance he's with one of the other demon kings...

Hey I never considered Iblis as a character in all this. Now that would be cool. What would he be the king of? Fun fact: In Islam, Iblis is known as one of the most powerful Jinn (second to Satan I think? Either way, he's pretty powerful, but I might have to double check that).

Frankly,I really hope the Myoudha has a deeper, darker and crueler side that will be shown through Shima's past.
Bonus if that side is darker enough to shake Bon's faith in the Myoudha.
It is already a bit ironic that a guy who hates lies and secrets is absolutely fine with leading a sect that is built on lies and secrets.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: MetallicArcher on January 06, 2015, 05:18:44 PM
@SimpleBliss

In Islam, Iblis is a jinn who rebelled against Allah alongside sevetal other jinns when he refused to kneel before Adan.

After that, he was expelled from paradise to hell and became Shaytan (thought sometimes Shaytan is used to refer to all the rebel jinns).

So Iblis is the Islam's version of Satan/Lucifer (depending on which version of the Christian fall myth you follow) which is why, since in the manga he is the king of fire I had suggest he might have been the one who had caused the Blue Eye Incident.

Fail fail fail fail fail fail I meant IFRIT. IFRIT, not Iblis! Darn. I was reading something about Ifrit a bit before this so that's all I saw when I read Watanuki's post. Then I just kept unconsciously writing Iblis. Fail. I know quite a bit about Iblis already haha, but thank you for explaining anyways.
(Actually all jinn are made of smokeless fire...also, Iblis wasn't sent to hell, nobody is in hell right now according to Islam, but he was pretty much damned to hell. Also, there was only one jinn amongst the angels being Iblis, and he was the only one who didn't prostrate)

But enough about religious stories haha

But I meant what I said, I think it would be cool if IFRIT was in the story (If Iblis was there...well, Iblis is really just Satan so there's no difference?)
Well the Ifrit are technically a class of winged fire creatures but whatever
It would be pretty cool if they appeared.

Now back to our personal little Satan

OH MY GOD! SHIMA? WHAT? It wasn't to be expected... I'm very excited and I want to read the chapter!! D_:
How long has he being a spy for MyouDha? Since childhood perhaps? That would explain why no one knew he could handle Yamantaka. If he has been doing since childhood, her family have been treating him like a puppet. 
Anyway, Renzou is becoming a very interesting character.
And what happened with Mamushi and Toudou becomes odd... Renzou had to know what was going to happen. In my opinion, Renzou's mother have to be related with all this, more than his sibblings.

I´m not really happy with this xD it would have been far more awesome to have seen everyone deal with Renzo as he is now not as a double agent... At least in Naruto Sasuke when he went bad he was "bad", not this after all I´m good guy.

If I´m honest I think Renzo is still deciding which side he belongs
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: SimpleBliss on January 07, 2015, 02:45:22 PM
Can someone fill me in on Toudou's place in all this? I'm completely lost with him and his involvement with Shima. I actually didn't catch anything concerning him and Shima...was there something I missed? Since when did he tell Shima anything/recruit him/give him the mission?

Toudou feels like a much too selfish character to me. I would believe it if he was working alone, which is why when I found out he works for the Illuminati, I found it strange.

Was the woman who ate the Impure Princess also working for the Illuminati?

And as far as I know, Shima hates responsibility and troublesome things. Being a double spy sounds quite troublesome, which is why I agree with Ncf and Romonmon about Shima being a puppet and not knowing which side he belongs on.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: xyzt on January 07, 2015, 04:38:13 PM
All we know is that Renzo was told by Todou that if he got admitted into True cross order apart from studying he also has to observe all the cram school students.

The illuminati were also making Renzo spy on the order and based on his interactions with his supervisor and Gedouin they are not treating him any better than his own family and friends and they are just as strict a military order as the myoudha is.On top of that if were to completely side with the illuminati he has to fight against his friends which he clearly is not comfortable with, so siding with the illuminati will be even more troublesome for him. So I really cant see him even thinking about completely siding with the illuminati.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: tardar-sauce on January 07, 2015, 05:54:23 PM
Yes, the Inpure Princess woman was also working for the Illuminati. Her words and the discussion between the Angelic Legion confirmed that.

First of all, I want to say that nothing is flawless. Which is something most of you seems to forget.

Working on two opposing sides like Renzou does is difficult; not everything he's doing is ever going to make 100% sense. He surely makes mistakes, is what I'm saying.

Since it is the 4th, I thought I would report. This month's SQ March issu will be on a break.
It wasn't mentioned in last issue. Sorry it became a last minute anouncement.
The break has just been decided, to be on the safe side.

We're currently writting chapter 65 that will appear next month...

Along with a panoramic shot of the school. I really like the detail she puts into the building, it's one of my favorite things to look for in AnE.

The last-minute absence notice kinda sucks but I'll be mad busy this month so I'm sure it'll fly by.

Oh fail I totally didn't notice that.

As much as I'm a diehard Yukio fan, this means we'll probably have more Yukio reflection and really, we should be focusing more on Rin now.

But I'm not really complaining  ;D

People who drink hot sake.

But hot sake won't stay hot long if you drink from flat cups or big glasses.

Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: chinonamida on February 03, 2015, 10:17:43 PM
I noticed it was Yukio right away because he has shorter hair.

I had eye level hair for a long time and I know it's not so easy to wash your face when they're not long enough to tie but long enough to get in the way. You either have to hold them back with one hand and wash your face with the other or you have to tilt your head way more forward. It gets annoying sometimes. I don't have to deal with that anymore since I cut them for my job. But now I can't sleep without people noticing and I'm more often blinded by the sun. I guess I'll grow them back when I can... *rambling*

Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread

I guess you're alone.

Godaiin has a different face profile.

And this is the sinks of the old dorm where only Yukio and Rin live. Though, it doesn't make it impossible for Godaiin to be there, but it's less likely.

i think there will be a godaiin in the next chapter. they're back in their normal school setting, kato may use him as the one questioning rin, "hey man, you never came back from your break at the festival, wat up?" This of course, will happen after the opening scene of a very uneasy yukio, feeling something within himseelffffff, and then mephisto says something deep about humans and a hint about the next arc is casually dropped but we dont notice until it hits us and when we look back we'll all be like, 'IT WAS RIGHT THERE, OMG"

More trolling from Mephisto would be so typical, it would be nostalgic.  Sipping from that tiny tea cup like a sir. 

I wouldn't mind a small filler, either.  I think after a long and emotional arc like this last one would ease the tension.  At least, the tension I've been feeling.  There could be a small filler with hints of what will happen for the next arc.

And Lucifer mentioned an upcoming war.  This means the show hasn't even started yet.

Post by: SKL on February 05, 2015, 03:07:24 AM
I can't deny I'm not disappointed  :-[ The emotional climax of Izumo's arc got me pumped again for more AnE and the mystery behind a new arc always gets me on the edge of my seat so this news is disheartening.

So Yukio washing his face, and Mephisto looking complacent as usual is all we're getting for now. Seems like nothing yet it tells a us a lot. A Mephisto dialogue is always very informative in shaping the overarching plot. Also the amount of panels spent on a frowning Yukio washing his face means his problems aren't over and we're getting more progression on them. Looks like the Izumo mission was just a distraction from his worries (he was probably grateful for it).

EDIT: also exactly what this person said

But well, I guess it'll be nice to see Mephisto again.

The byakko got yet another demon profile? This time one separate each for Mike and Uke. I'm really curious of what it says this time.

And the kyuby profile, too. It looks like it has the life-taking-and-giving-stone attached to its body. So I guess it's not just a more powerful variation of the Byakko. The illustration that goes with the knfo is very pretty by the way.

That Kamiki family pic hit me right in the feels.

Sooo I was bored and went to Katou-sensei twitter, and looked again at the sketches she posted for chapter 65..

and when I saw this pic..

(click to show/hide)

I noticed that Juuzo is holding something that looked like a business card?   ???
I think it's probably Toudo's business card or something. Like maybe he gave his business card to Renzou after he spoke to him (like Maria did to Izumo, even though Maria's business card looks different so maybe I'm reading too much into the image) and he either told his siblings about it or they found it out or something?
Cause Juuzo looks serious in this panel.
What do you guys think?

And I really hope next chapter will be longer than usual.. I'm so hungry for more AnE  :'(

Edit: Since I'm hungry for more AnE I will talk about some more of my thoughts here --

Don't you think that Lucifer doesn't trust Renzou?
I mean look at him when he says "So you're the one who uses black flames?"

(click to show/hide)

and his line that comes next "this past year you shared joys and sorrows with Okumura Rin and the others as their classmate." sounds pretty suspicious to me.

I think it looks like a chocolate graham cookie. You know, from those mixed cookies boxes, like this (http://mangafox.me/manga/pandora_hearts/v01/c003/14.html).


You think it's Lightning because he seems to have his hair in his face. But I think it's someone bowing his head.

Also, as far as I can tell from the collar, he seems to be wearing an undone shirt.

So I say it's Renzou apologizing again after they gave him some cloths.

In the impure king arc, was it ever revealed why the Myoudha never tried to destroy the right and left eye of the impure king? Considering they have powerful fire demons like yamantaka, ucchusma and karura,that shouldnt have been a very difficult task and doing that would have saved a lot of people who had died from the illness before?

Hmm good point. I think it is because the output of power needed was to much for a human to handle. The Head Priest (Bon's Father) trained for years for an attack to defeat the Impure King but lost his chance by exerting too much of his strength.

Perhaps the demons didn't have enough power either, otherwise they would have destroyed it themselves.

Hm... "Continue acting as his spy job..." How does that make any sense? What can he do from True Cross Academy? Why would Lucifer even BOTHER sending Shima back there in this situation? Talk about a grade-A dumbass. The verdict is in, Lucifer is NOT a smart demon.

And Yukio meeting Lucifer?! How? Wow. (If this was in any way similar to the fic I tried to write, where Yukio was split into human and demon halves at birth and the demon half knew Lucifer, I'd just...wow.) But perhaps I can't have nice things and those were Lucifer's eyes the entire time.

Wowow...relax please
I hope Kato is intentionally trying not to make sense here if this is real.
Mephisto, at least, probably has something more to do that his actions don't make sense at this point (and hopefully that is causing Lucifer to also make apparantly nonsense moves).
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: facets-and-rainbows on April 04, 2015, 03:04:51 AM
...So does Lucifer think that Shima is HIS double spy pretending to be the Order's spy? He doesn't seem that trusting.

Man, I want to hear what Mephisto has to say about Lucifer and the possibility of beating him. Or what he has to say about anything. I want to see Mephisto have screen time again  ;D

Also, are we 100% sure Shima was saying that Yukio met Lucifer, or is there a chance that he's just saying that he (Shima) met Lucifer? Japanese likes to leave subjects out of its sentences... [Edit: And could he be referring to when everyone briefly met Lucifer during the festival before they took Izumo away?]

sousui is more of like a chief of the entire organization, so I don't think it is the right word to refer to Todo

If Yukio's met Lucifer before, it's possible it could have been during a mission in the past when he was with Shiro, right? I mean, they never really bother to say much about the missions those two went on together until it becomes relevant to the plot (like the flashbacks with Shiro and Kuro, where Yukio was also present), so we have to wait til they reveal more as the story goes on. Maybe Lucifer tried to recruit Shiro? (Let's face it, trying to recruit the strongest member in an enemy organization isn't necessarily a bad idea, even if there's a snowball's chance in hell of it actually working).
...but I guess there's no sense in theorizing about that til we get the new chapter proper and more details.

What I'm reading sounds so disappointing. Especially the part that Lucifer sent Renzou back believing that he's decieving his friends.. or something like that.

First of all I'm pretty sure Lucifer doesn't trust Renzou 100%... And I'm starting to feel like Katou is trying to please the audience by having Renzou come back but that all feels like bad writing and bad story telling and so far nothing make sense... I hope we won't be disappointed.

Her writing throughout the Impure king art and the storytelling were phenomenal and made her one of my favourite authors.. but now things are starting to sound weird and some things feel forced (like Renzou's return and the gang's reaction to it. ???)

Anyway I hope I'm wrong about Katou and I hope she really has something in mind and that she's going to surprise us in a good way  :D
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: Watanuki on April 04, 2015, 09:06:54 AM
I wouldn't necessarily blame the author here. Last chapter smacks more of editorial interference because it came out of nowhere and reset the whole dynamic of the story back to before the Izumo kidnapping. In other words nothing's really changed except we now know that Reznou is working for Mephisto and that Mephy is a sly arsehole. So, sorta like before really.

Katou had to do damage limitation then (didn't she take a month or two off as well) Probbaly to accomodate her editors/publishers screaming in her ear to bring Renzou back in the fold.



Yukio having met Lucifer before, yeah finally something new.

Maybe this is his way of testing Renzou. Trying to figure out if he's really trustworthy.

The only way the above circumstance makes sense is if Renzo told Lucifer about his double agent status and convinced him that he could continue spying for him in the order. So that means his loyalty still isnt clear.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: questdrivencollie on April 04, 2015, 10:46:37 AM
Even then still doesn't make complete sense. How would anyone in the Order possibly trust him then, knowing he's a double agent? But I'll wait until the chapter comes out.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: xyzt on April 04, 2015, 11:20:35 AM
Does the order even know about Renzo's supposed betrayal? He was Mephisto's spy and it was already said that beside him, the cram school students and some members of the Myoudha nobody else knows about his double agent status.

Also, Renzo was supposed to reach the heart of the illuminati as a double agent but now that he is sent back, is there really any point in having him continue as a spy?

Lighting is going to show up, Katou posted on her twitter some pics of the chapter.

I remember that Katou was on a some kind of schooling about making plot (you know, that one where you talked about notes on photos being too small to see spoilers), maybe that's also the case of a totall change in writing plot?

Was referring mainly to the cram school. Just not seeing why Lucifer would send Renzou back knowing that his friends were fully aware of his work with the Illuminati.

I agree 100%, ive been following this series for 4 yrs and loved every min of it. If Renzo came back for spying on the cram students, THAT MAKES NO SENSE. And you guys need to stop trying to make it make sense, because it doesnt. All she had to do was say he escaped and that would have made for a GRAND action scene.

To be honest, the reason why I hate reading other people's translation is not because they sometimes mess up lines, because I do to (we just don't mess up the same kind of lines); it's because if I read it and realize it's decent, I won't want to translate it for my scanlation team afterwards, because I'm lazy.

It feels like doing a 100 meters relay race, but the other team get to start one week earlier. My competitive sense is taking a blow each time. orz

^ Seconded! I always buy the Viz version when it's available because I don't generally get the volumes anymore, but whilst their translations are normally fairly readable, their need to appeal to a wider audience means they completely skip over the Japanese nuances and expressions which make the chapters so much richer. Even stuff like Yukio not calling Rin "nii-san" irritates me.
Also your translations are generally more literal than either Viz's or MP's, which makes those of us who can't read Japanese feel like we're reading as close to the original script as possible. I for one, will always enjoy your translations the most!

That's kinda why I dropped doing the spoiler translations - I like yours much better and your quality is much higher (I do however use yours to learn from, haha). And as far as laziness goes, I'm facing a similar problem with another series I'm working on. Viz had the rights to it but they don't seem to plan to release anything past where Tokyo Pop left off when they had the rights before Viz. So I'm slowly working on it now but since I'm a one man team I know that while I like the series and the practice, if Viz does pick it up I'll end up dropping the project.

Viz is okay in translations but it's like... they try to westernize things and colloqualize it... and everytime they do that in either AnE or somewhere else, they end up losing some of the impact. I understand that some translations can be tricky but it's honestly a rip off when they engage in "creative" translations and screw with the story just to make it more "relevant" for english readers. I recently reread my copies of DGM and there are just so many parts where the translations are weakened or distorted for (what I assume to be) the sake of making it easier to read. But that's honestly such BS, since in DGM's case they ended up making it unnecessarily hard to follow and lost some key pieces of information and development in the process.

As for mangapanda... their weekly translations of OP (i don't follow Bleach atm) are pretty bad and varied. In this month's AnE's case however, their translation seemed to be pretty good and flowed well. I don't think they even managed to misspell anything this time. But all that might be just because this chapter seemed to be more straightforward in terms of conversations. IE: I wouldn't trust mangapanda to translate Mephisto's lines correctly, lol.

I like it when they actually, well, translate things. I wouldn't mind honorifics being kept, but the Dutch version of Inuyasha left all monster names in Japanese and it was pretty much unreadable. I think officially published English manga should be understandable for everyone, also people who have never read a manga before. If readers need a glossary in order to be able to understand what's going on, you're doing it wrong.

The problem in DGM wasn't so much with names (well... it was at one point but that wasn't Viz's fault) but more in the context and direction of the conversation itself. Like, it's really obvious to me that whoever is doing the translations is either new or hasn't read the series as a series - meaning that they've no idea what's going on and so some of the conversations ended up loosing shock value, plot importance and actually being addressed to the wrong person. "Oh, this character is more or less a ghost and can only talk to one person? Nah, let's have him randomly talk to the whole room."

It's a very obvious lapse in quality and lack of effort, especially in series like DGM where continuity is important.

A problem with lack of translation like you mentioned is also annoying but is at least easier to remedy with a footnote if the company really wants to keep the original name. I don't understand why Viz and other publishers don't just take a page out of scanlators' books and explain references and puns in footnotes.

@tardar-sauce, evenwiththerain, GolPhee, Kaibutsu
Thanks. I wasn't looking for praise, I just wanted to rant. Still I truly appreciate to know you like my translations.

@Kaibutsu
I'm glad if you can learn things from me.
Though you need to know, I'm not that good with keigo, so don't trust these sentences 100%.
I learned Japanese in the streets, not in classrooms, so...
I'm sorry for the times I make mistakes.

@Kaibutsu, NeeNee
I think if someone reads a Japanese book, it's most likely because they're interested in Japanese culture.
Doing some research or reading foot notes about Japanese Youkai's name, traditional food's name or honorifics, shouldn't be a bother.
And how much harder is it than, let's say, learning every pokémons name by heart?

I know it's a well accepted practice in translation to adapt a text to the time and place of the target audience.
And I agree when it's texts like instructions manuals where the goal is to understand quickly and be done with it.
But in my opinion, you can't do that with texts like novels, comics, movies or plays and still call it translation.
If you rewrite romeo and juliet adapting the text to modern time and places, it's called an adaptation or a personal rendition.
So why can manga, anime and video games translators can take so much liberties without thinking there's something wrong with that?

As a translator I think it's our job to stay as close as possible to the original content both to respect the author's intent and to respect the readers' interest.

Also, in a story like Ao no Exorcist, where you often have to translate lines out of context, straying too far away can be dangerous.

I think if someone reads a book in English, they want the text to be in English. You can add some foot notes here and there, but you shouldn't have them on every other page. People want to feel like they are reading an exciting story, not struggling their way through a textbook.

How many casual fans are willing to do that though? By putting the bar so high, you are limiting access to all but the most die-hard fans. But publishing compagnies don't want to attract only obsessed geeks, they want their potential audience to be as broad as possible. And that means making the books readable for people who don't want to put weeks of research or studying into them.

That's something else. I wasn't talking about changing the place or time period, just translating the text.

And I know there's some bad translators out there (whoever translated Kenshin in Dutch needs to be send back to primary school for grammar classes and comprehensive reading, because by Thor, that was embarrasing -.-), but in general, I think English publishing compagnies do a decent job making manga readable without losing too much context.

^
Whether the words come from another time or place, or another culture or field of expertize, or a completely different sci-fi or fantasy world, people always have to learn new words.

I read many books where there's up to a dozen foot notes on every page, though you don't have to read all of them if you don't want to. Same for the words you simply don't know and don't have foot notes for, you don't always have to research them.

If I say:
The character went to the rectory to meet father Johnson. You know it's a place.
The scoundrel brandished his cutlass at the character. You know it's someone and a weapon.
The character was told the village was under the repeated attacks of a tsuchigumo who resided in the nearby mountain's cave. You know it's some entity that poses a threat.
The chief invited the character to celebrate this over some okonomiyaki. You know it's food.

In storytelling you can't always vulgarize these words because it would take away from the ambiance and can even cause problems. Like tsuchigumo can refer to a half human half spider monster, but can also refer to mountain thieves. If you don't write a foot note, you'll break the suspense.


In One Piece, the first scene where we see Zoro, he's tied to a post to starve and some little girl brings him an onigiri. He eats it out of gratitude even though it's inedible because she put tones of sugar in it.
I heard in the english version of the anime, they changed that onigiri for cookies and sugar with salt.
Of course not every westerner knows what an onigiri is and that it's not supposed to contain sugar, but from the scene it's obvious it's food and it's not supposed to contain sugar.
Later on, he names one of his attack "onigiri" wich can also mean "demon's slash".


Also it's sometimes more than just words. Like you can't expect to read a translation of Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei without expecting foot notes on potentially every page. Though this is an extreme case, you will encounter things like that in other manga. And a lot of people would rather be explained the original joke or reference rather than read a made up joke or reference. Like they don't want "President Abe" to be replaced with "President Obama" or a joke about "Abenomics" be replaced with a joke about "Obamacare". People who doesn't know and doesn't want to learn can just overlook these jokes or references. It's not like it's preventing them to follow the rest of the story. Even though they're missing on some elements.

I suppose the point here is we don't agree on the target audience.

Quote
How many casual fans are willing to do that though?
Anyone who played a pokémon game knows almost every pokémon's name, at least at the time they were playing it. "Gym Leader is sending out Gyarados. Do you want to switch pokémon?" "No, it's fine. I'll keep Ivysaur." You know, if you don't want to die, you kind of have to remember them.
I was 4 when I played the first pokémon game and I don't remember actively trying to remember their names or types.

Whether the words come from another time or place, or another culture or field of expertize, or a completely different sci-fi or fantasy world, people always have to learn new words.

I read many books where there's up to a dozen foot notes on every page, though you don't have to read all of them if you don't want to. Same for the words you simply don't know and don't have foot notes for, you don't always have to research them.

If I say:
The character went to the rectory to meet father Johnson. You know it's a place.
The scoundrel brandished his cutlass at the character. You know it's someone and a weapon.
The character was told the village was under the repeated attacks of a tsuchigumo who resided in the nearby mountain's cave. You know it's some entity that poses a threat.
The chief invited the character to celebrate this over some okonomiyaki. You know it's food.

In storytelling you can't always vulgarize these words because it would take away from the ambiance and can even cause problems. Like tsuchigumo can refer to a half human half spider monster, but can also refer to mountain thieves. If you don't write a foot note, you'll break the suspense.

Yeah, those work. But in Inuyasha, you had different kinds of monsters on almost every page. Knowing it's a monster doesn't help you much if you can't keep track of who they're talking about (they were really long names, not like Pokemon).

They also used words like 'hanyou' and 'shikon no tama', which were kind of essential to the story and hard to understand just from context... and they only explained them once, in the first volume. Forgot what it means? Too bad, you have to go searching through the loads of foot notes until you find the right one. That sort of things can really kill a story.

Of course there's a right way to do it and a wrong way to do it.

In a recent chapter of Salaryman Exorcist, their was a lot of foods' name I had to translate. The context made it possible to write descriptions of the foods in the dialogues. So I translated almost all of them into english.
But if we take the example from my last post, where someone invites someone else to have some food, I can't replace "okonomiyaki" with "crepe made of flour, eggs, yam, cabbage and dashi, grilled with meat and vegetables and toped with worcestershire sauce, mayonnaise and dried seaweeds."
Others might replace "okonomiyaki" with "pizza" but I'd never do that.

I agree they could have at least translated the "no tama" and the "han" parts. I assume they used "youkai" too.
edit: Sorry, I was deadtired when I made that post. I meant, I think if they used the term "youkai", they should also have used the term "half youkai" instead of "hanyou". But if they used "demon" or "spirit" instead of "youkai", then they should have used "half demon" or "half spirit". For "shikon no tama", "shikon" is pretty much like a proper noun here, so I would have left it as it is. There's no reason not to translate "no tama", even though I'm not sure what I would translate it to. I guess "jewel" is fine. Though a more literal translation would be "ball" or "orb". So "shikon orb" or "shikon jewel" is what would make more sense, in my opinion.

I want the twins to talk and confront each other too. They never have a solemn one on one talk about what's happening with their lives.  Rin has to take initiative. He just can't act like an ignorant guy with an overly optimistic view. Honestly that side of him disturbs me to no end. If he really cares for Yukio he should be able to pick up what's bothering his twin and why is he so distant towards everyone and with him. I don't want any unecessary interruptions from other characters noticing these troubles. It should be Rin himself noticing it and not him picking ideas from what the other exwires might notice especially with Shiemi. Renzou is out of the question. Rin has to step up seriously. I want them to bond, to open up you know. But honestly things will be very tricky especially that Yukio, has issues that are so painful to admit. Anyone suffering from sibling rivalry can attest to that. Meanwhile, I want Lucifer to get his character expanded more. He and Toudou actually. Maybe snippets of their plans toward the twins. Or the war their planning. We have so much stuff ahead of us I really think this manga is gonna end by the time I turn 30 lol.

I wonder if we'll get a small time skip.

If I remember correctly, this is the outlook of important dated events so far:

Now: war on Illuminati ongoing
<3 months: exorcist exams for the exwires
<4-5 months: the artificial Gehenna gate resumes opening in time
<1 year: Satan comes to Gehenna, Illuminati 'Nirvana' achieved

I'm pretty hyped to see the exwires become exorcists and finally see them in exorcist uniforms among other things, so I hope we see the start of this soon. Of course there has to be more Yukio conflict progression and we still haven't seen Shura's take on the situation. Yukio has to report to her so I wonder if any sort of -couple weeks/months or so- time skip will happen before this.

Anyone suffering from sibling rivalry can attest to that.

Sorry, this is going to be long, but there is a lot to say on this.

First, while Rin is hardly the ignorant overly optimistic guy, he really feels he needs to act like the ignorant overly optimistic guy.  As shown from the Impure King arc, Rin is dealing with a very well-hidden but pretty severe case of Survivors Guilt since Father Fujimoto's death (wandering around in the junk filled place, thinking it might be better if he just died, while wondering why Fujimoto bothered to save him in the first place) and while he learned to accept what he is at the end, he still hasn't worked through it entirely (asking Fujimoto what to do now, and his last words in the dream "Why did you save me?") And it wouldn't be realistic if he got over it just like that, it's going to take some time and him finding those answers himself (just as the Fujimoto in his dream told him).  But in the meantime, he's doing what he tends to do- trying to deal with his problems himself and trying not to bother the others with them.  But enough about Rin.

Let's deconstruct Yukio a little- the sibling rivalry you mentioned is spot on- when Bon's father tells Rin that's he growing up to be a great person, just like Fujimoto, there is a panel that shows Yukio's reaction to that- and I'm not even going to say anything else, because the look on Yukio's face in that panel says it all.  Yukio tries very hard to appear in control and calm at all times, but he is just as troubled as his brother (he's still only a student, tasked with watching after his brother at all times, and he's teaching a class- and HE'S ONLY 15) and his constant anxiety and worried over his heritage are all too easily exploitable (which I think Lucifer knew very well).  However, because of his inner conflict (he may love his brother, but he dislikes demons and more than anything DOESN'T WANT to be one, yet he sits there wishing he had Rin's flames...strangely contradictory...) he lacks some of the mental strength Rin has (who has made it painfully obvious which side he's on) and has trouble dealing with his problems over than suppressing them and trying to ignore them- which is why Shiemi was so suprised to see them fighting- she has never seen Yukio get angry like that- Rin is the only one who's seen it and who really knows/understands.  But Yukio has been so conditioned to seeing Rin as "helpless" and he needs Yukio to "supervise" (which can be read: CONTROL) him that it would be a blow to his ego if it turned out to be the other way around

In short, Yukio does not want to appear as if he's not in control, or that he needs help.  As NeeNee mentioned, Rin asked him, told him he could tell him anything, and Yuki blew him off, and told him everything was fine- later when Shiemi told him Yukio seemed stressed, he was annoyed, thinking he told Shiemi something and didn't tell him.  Kazue loves mind-f***ing her characters, and Yukio is headed towards a very major breakdown, but it's not Rin's fault for not helping.  He offered, but that is all he can do.  Yukio DOES NOT WANT his help.  And you cannot help someone who doesn't want to be helped.  (Sorry for how long this was)

We all pretty much agree. Some additional thoughts

First, while Rin is hardly the ignorant overly optimistic guy, he really feels he needs to act like the ignorant overly optimistic guy.  As shown from the Impure King arc, Rin is dealing with a very well-hidden but pretty severe case of Survivors Guilt since Father Fujimoto's death (wandering around in the junk filled place, thinking it might be better if he just died, while wondering why Fujimoto bothered to save him in the first place) and while he learned to accept what he is at the end, he still hasn't worked through it entirely (asking Fujimoto what to do now, and his last words in the dream "Why did you save me?") And it wouldn't be realistic if he got over it just like that, it's going to take some time and him finding those answers himself (just as the Fujimoto in his dream told him). 

That's true, but I think Rin has the advantage of not letting it weigh him down. As he said, he's not the type to "brood when there's fighting to be done". He stows his fears by living in the moment. However, that means he doesn't think things through. He accepted Renzou as a friend in school despite how untrustworthy Renzou is. He prioritized his concern over hurting the zombies over the safety of his comrades. He brazenly threatened Mephisto, who is the reason Rin's in a stable situation, because he got upset.

Basically, Rin ignores his issues in their entirety and just lives, meaning he has much less psychological damage for his enemies to use. It also means he does stupid acts of kindness and stupid acts of stupid.

However, because of his inner conflict (he may love his brother, but he dislikes demons and more than anything DOESN'T WANT to be one, yet he sits there wishing he had Rin's flames...strangely contradictory...)

I thought that was mostly "goddammit Rin, I never would've gotten us into this situation, if only I could've had the flames... oh shit I feel awful for even thinking that."

has trouble dealing with his problems over than suppressing them and trying to ignore them- which is why Shiemi was so suprised to see them fighting- she has never seen Yukio get angry like that- Rin is the only one who's seen it and who really knows/understands.

I think one of the big issues is that Yukio covers over his feelings to act like his image of how he should be acting. He's thinks he should be pleasant, friendly, have no ill will towards his sibling or father, and always be calm (a totally flat personality). He has a lot of repressed anger, isn't making friends, has a normal level of mixed feelings about his situation, and is freakin' volatile. He's pretty good at acting like that image, but still hates himself for not matching perfectly.

I'm expecting that Yukio will deliberately ditch that image, jump up and down on it for good measure (Kazue hasn't been tormenting him with having the "nature of a demon" for nothing... oh Shiemi, the things you'll see from your idol.).

Yukio DOES NOT WANT his help.  And you cannot help someone who doesn't want to be helped.

Indeed. Mr. "I Don't Need It" doesn't want ANY help. Until his secret is out, the Morinas contract breaks, and the Order goes "oh great, another traitor", at which point hanging with the Illuminati sounds better than being dead.

First, while Rin is hardly the ignorant overly optimistic guy, he really feels he needs to act like the ignorant overly optimistic guy.
He often seems to be forcing the optimism. But he doesn't seem to be pretending when he doesn't know something. A few months ago he didn't know anything about demons and exorcists, not even that they existed at all, and even at regular school he was skipping classes, also he pretty much never had any friends, so it makes sense that he's kind of bad at these things.

Well, it doesn't necessarily says it all. A while back I was arguing that it might have been less about jealousy, as other people were saying, and more about the fact he just rebuked Rin for what he did and now Tatsuma was praising him for the same thing.
Like when a kid gets into a fight and one parent says it's bad to fight but the other parent says it's good to be able to fend for yourself, then the first turn to the second with a shut-the-fuck-up stare. X)

Shiemi saw him like that at least once before, at the camp when Shura threw a beer can at him.
Shura obviously saw it many times.
Shirou too probably. Though he's not there anymore.

Quote
But Yukio has been so conditioned to seeing Rin as "helpless" and he needs Yukio to "supervise" (which can be read: CONTROL) him that it would be a blow to his ego if it turned out to be the other way around
Well, it was the other way around when they were kids. With Yukio being helpless and always needed Rin's help. And in Yukio's subconscious it still is I think. But logic tells him he's the one with more experience so he should be the one to know better. That's why he always tells Rin what to do. But when Rin doesn't listen and still manage to do better than him, he starts to doubt himself and goes back to thinking he's the incapable one.


EDIT:
He prioritized his concern over hurting the zombies over the safety of his comrades.
I think it's more like he prioritized not going berserk over giving his comrades an easier time.
I'm not sure though I think he made himself some lines not to cross and not killing humans was one of them.

I actually agree with titangirl161 on this, because I think Kazue has been trying to set up the fact that in Yukio's eyes, and much to his chagrin, Rin is more like Shiro than he is, and he's been trying so hard to be like Shiro but Rin is apparently like him without even trying. That conflict was also used in the battle with Toudou and in reflections later on and directly relates to what Tatsuma had said to Rin. But at the end of the day it doesn't really matter haha

Mr. "I Don't Need It," ha! Good one! In all honestly though, the Illuminati both creeps me out and intrigues me. I still feel really really strange about Lucifer, and the fact that he's so...polite. It's scary because I think that without looking from our reader's point of view, if I was in that universe and the Illuminati proposed their view to me vs. Mephisto or the Order proposing theirs, I would join the Illuminati in a heartbeat, so I definitely wouldn't blame Yukio...fully. Kazue mentioned that despite all the apparent "emotion" the demons are showing, no demon actually has prevalent emotions (well they do, but just very very watered down...look at Amaimon) and that makes Lucifer scarier (even though Mephisto is the same, Lucifer has a way with things...). We saw how he viewed humans as cruel creatures when he killed Gedouin, and yet he's so polite. It's driving me crazy. I want to know how he established himself as the way he is and also his history with Mephisto. I mean, the dude founded an entire organization complete with high tech equipment and scientific advances. Mephisto just joined what used to be a smaller exorcist organization.

Wait a minute. Why is a demon king an exorcist? What was Mephisto even thinking when he first joined. "I'm going to rebel against daddy"?

To me it just looks like he's looking at Tatsuma when he made that expression.
I'm not saying he's not jealous of Rin, I'm just saying that at that moment that expression meant "Tatsuma, don't thank him for what he did and/or don't say he's an admirable person like Shirou."
If it was only about jealousy, he would have looked away or something, not throw lightning at Tatsuma.
But that's just my take on it.

I agree that Rin made lines that he wouldn't cross, but I agree with Yukio that those are stupid lines. (I seem to recall one of Yukio's earlier missions was in dealing with a normal ghoul/zombie too... the one in the flashback in chapter 28.)

I definitely agree. It's just that Yukio's a goddamn perfectionist. He's a "good kid" (Toudou has ruined that phrase forever). He wants to help people, that's why he's inclined towards medicine at all. He seems to have this super-screwball notion that Rin and Shiro are much more "pure of heart" than he is, and by comparison that means he is not a good person. He's a good guy driving himself crazy.

(On a side note, I swear, Yukio has a problem with getting attacked by flying disembodied hands.)

In all honestly though, the Illuminati both creeps me out and intrigues me. I still feel really really strange about Lucifer, and the fact that he's so...polite.

Oooh, loads of stuff here.

The Illuminati strikes me as an organization with nice ideals but freaking scary goals. Lucifer wants peace, but by uplifting the weak by reverting the world to an original state. Mephisto's ideology is different. He seems to believe that peace will arise by natural disorder and differences. I also think he believes human progress and search for knowledge will be the breakthrough.

We don't know why Lucy wants to merge Assiah and Gehenna, only that they supposedly were together before. That probably would link to his strange views on saving humans while resurrecting a homicidal maniac (Satan). The backstory behind this seems really important (argh, Yukio, get your butt over there so you can start getting Lucy to blab.)

The Illuminati is also rather insidious in how it wants to promote the weak by strengthening them using demons, and how it makes equality by merging humans and demons so there are no differences. That's really creepy. (Aw shit, I just realized it's like the synthesis ending of Mass Effect.)

so you all mean he will never ask any help from anyone? If this happens then what would happen with yukio? Where would he side? I thinm he'll feel intoxicated with just thinking of both sides  :'( but if Lucifer gets to him before the exwires he's dead! What plot device would katou use? Aaarghhh! And judging from the cover which is lo and behold yukio as most predicted will his story slowly unfold in the coming chapters? His. The illuminati and renzou's? If classrom chapters wouldnt happen

Even though he prevented it once and it hasn't happened in a while doesn't mean it will never happen again.
Also, it doesn't happen when he's pissed(I take you mean angry, not drunk), it happens when he's overwhelmed, mainly in combat. Since the impure king he didn't fight any overwhelming opponent, has he?

so you all mean he will never ask any help from anyone? If this happens then what would happen with yukio? Where would he side? I thinm he'll feel intoxicated with just thinking of both sides  :'( but if Lucifer gets to him before the exwires he's dead! What plot device would katou use? Aaarghhh! And judging from the cover which is lo and behold yukio as most predicted will his story slowly unfold in the coming chapters? His. The illuminati and renzou's? If classrom chapters wouldnt happen

No, I seriously doubt it.  But that's part of the suspense!  I can't wait to see him breakdown, what will happen next??  What will they all/Rin think? What about if the vatican finds out?  What if the only way to avoid prison/death is to join the Illuminati???  It's these things that make it so exciting!  I can't for the chapter this month *tries to look patientand fails miserably*

I never said that but, whenever I see Toudou I actually think he'd be nice to take a drink with.
I don't know if it's because he looks like a salaryman or because he's mild tempered or maybe because he looks like he has many interesting stories and would have interesting feedback for whatever I would tell him. X)

* cries even harder* so it wasnt a rizumo thing??? but the toudou and yukio chapter was okay but not enough huhuhu i want my rizumo!!! There was another chapter to it with izumo then?
Yes. It's the next chapter I think. It's called "The sorrow of the tsundere". I wouldn't really say there's rizumo in it, but there's Rin and Izumo interacting on two pages.

This one is from "The sorrow of the student counseling". From Yukio's apprehension of classroom chaos.

I just really get bothered by ooc-ness. But Toudou is so over the top, and Yukio's reactions to him are equally excessive. I find them comedic already.

I like to think in the chapter that Toudou just says the same thing so often that he can do it wasted. Not canon, but funny. (Toudou's "that is not good" sounds really like him though. )

Toudou is the type that will be congratulating someone on their wedding right before slicing their throat. He'd be really great to talk to provided you have a good constitution and fast reflexes.

I agree most characters often feels off in Salaryman Exorcist, but somehow I like how they write Yukio.
I think I mentioned it once before but, I like how there's a big difference between what he thinks and what he says and how he speaks in his mind; sometimes it gets pretty close to how Rin speaks. X)

What do you mean? That's a pretty normal phrase. In Japanese he says "ikenai" which literally translates "That can't go".

Quote
Toudou is the type that will be congratulating someone on their wedding right before slicing their throat.
"What matters is not whether you kill people or not but how you treat them while they're still alive."

The best would be to have no reason for him to kill you.


But seriously wait. If ever Yukio really sides with the illuminati then how would he and shima react to each other?
It depends on how Yukio joins. But regardless of that or anything else, that question might be completely irrelevant if Yukio and Renzou are affected to completely different branches of the organization and practically never interact with each other.

Though no matter what, I think Renzou will take it pretty well. I don't know about Yukio.

This is something I have always thought about but never really mentioned it, because I have absolutely no idea. It almost bothers me to think about it. I agree with chinonamida on that it depends on how Yukio joins and most likely they'll be placed in different branches so we won't even need to go through that. Actually, if Shima's sole purpose of coming back to the exwires was to pressure Yukio, then he would probably end up leaving when Yukio does, and we would need to have awkward interactions. If he has another ulterior motive, he'd stay and they would have nothing to do with each other.

I feel like Yukio wouldn't even be able to look at Shima, because he'd be stooping that low as well (then again, what constitutes as "stooping low"?) and he used to be Shima's sensei but he wouldn't be able to call himself that anymore. It would kind of be like letting someone who saw you at your best and most respected self suddenly view you at your absolute worst and declining self. Anyways, about Shima, like chinonamida said, he would probably be totally A-OK with it all.

Source is from a Japanese anonymous thread Shitaraba keijiban(Shitaraba bulletin board).
6/4 is the official date for the new SQ but the Kansai(Western Japan) area tends to have SQ out a day before.
Several different IDs writing on the same day so although not a good source, I guess it was reliable enough to bring it here.

thankyou very much!!!!!! I agree with your comments with the girls. It could be a nostalgic thing for izumo to remind her of that bath scene. Now that she's finally gonna take a bath with shiemi. (Maybe izumo would remember how rin saw her naked). Well. That's just typical of yukio. If these spoilers are really part of the chapter maybe i could give the exwires a break   ;D

Sigh. Well, that's about what I expected after the last chapter: some dull exwire shit. At least it's nice to just have the girls together.

Yukio's probably not saying (the eye thing) to anyone, and he said to Rin with a smile that he's just tired, and the end.

We already knew he'd do that, but still, goddammit Yukio. This beating around the bush is also getting tiresome. Defect already.

i agree with @chino, these chapters gives us more insight on the characters out of the storyline and i like that because aside from plotline, i like reading this series because the characters are very different and i like knowing more about them. it also adds the comedic relief that these past few chapters have been lacking  ;)

Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: kirarin on June 03, 2015, 02:30:18 PM
Now that you think about it. These chapters also show a little bit of shipping. I like delving into the exwires' normal lives. They're teens and u wanna know their personalities more through these breather chapters. Who knows what painful/shocking events could transpire. Maybe we could have a dialogue with renzou and izumo or anything undisclosed for example. Also. These chapters are also opening of another terror that awaits them just like how the izumo arc opened with the festival.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: Breakingchains49 on June 03, 2015, 03:17:49 PM
WTF!!! This is so annoying. She always "chills" in between arcs. After the impure king arc we had 2 vols. of crapping around. I see what you guys are saying, but this is why a lot of people dont like blue/ ao no exorcist to begin with. Its called a shonen batle manga, but she had 3 WHOLE chapters(3 months) dedicated to a festival(which i enjoyed). And i feel shes gonna do something similar again

We have a gehenna gate opening, illuminati war, and the not mention the series is called blue /ao no exorcist AND THE MAIN CHARACTER AINT EVEN AN EXORCIST YET.

Im probably gonna enjoy this next chapter cause I enjoy the character interactions BUT she really needs to get to the main story soon. (I STILL LOVE THIS SERIES)

^ agree with you here, I like carefree chapters but the problem there is that aoex is monthly, so the waiting is much longer than other series and while I'm totally ok with it (if it were a weekly manga probably the art wouldn't have been so good) sometimes is disappointing to see that the plot doesn't go forward, and ch65 was a little disappointing, so...
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: Kaibutsu on June 03, 2015, 05:06:39 PM
This is going to be hilariously ironic - A chapter dedicated to talking things out but the ones who really need to do so will be keeping mum and won't get anywhere (Yukio, Shima, maybe Rin) and it doesn't look like Takara was involved either. I do like that these breather chapters give AnE a more of a slice-of-life feel, rather than dumping characters in the middle of a battlefield. But at the same time it's a bit annoying when we're on the brink of war/serious problems on multiple fronts and we've got these uneventful chapters. Fanfic writers and shippers are probably rejoicing though, haha.

The next breather chapter: The exwires decide to spend all chapter in the kitchen making breakfast. Dramatic character development when we discover that resident rooster Bon hates eggs. /s

Mephisto is pretty up in up joining the main characters in their daily activities, so I'm actually looking forward to his involvement. See, we don't know enough about him at all so I don't mind getting uneventful break chapters with him. Bath scene would be an added bonus for obvious reasons.  8)

Remember in the character guide book how Kato thinks of Konekomaru and Shima as opposites?
And look at where he has the wound, in the right side (looking from him) of the forehead
That's the complete opposite of Shima's wound he bears on his left side of his forehead

Shoot, I can't interpret anything without the full chapter in my grubby hands. Cue Wild Mass Guessing! Either it's a letter to a far-off associate (in which case Yukio would've been an idiot for not contacting them earlier) or an ad for the bath that they visit that Yukio's monologuing over (in which case Yukio would also be an idiot because he thinks he should maybe consult someone, then shuts down because he was accused of being weak and asking for help demonstrates that).

(I'm probably utterly wrong, but ah well. I still love to think that Yukio's reaction after Shiemi breaks him out of his daze in chapter 44 as "oh! Books, we were talking about books, I love books!" ... Yes I stink.)

Those are the marks defining his forehead. They're on both sides (the one on the left is covered by SFX). Koneko's always had 'em.

Anyways, with the little snippets we're getting so far, seems like this chapter has a pretty decent variety of things.

This chapter seems interesting as far as character interactions goes. I'm a bit bummed though since it sounds like we are not getting much plot progression, but I agree it'll probably be more enjoyable than it sounds.

Is it me or the first monkey is covering its mouth, the one in the middle its ears and the other its eyes? It's like the phrase "don't see, don't hear, don't speak", but I don't know much about it.

EDIT:
I searched on google and found that this symbology is part of the Koshi, a Japanese folk religion and is called "the three mystic apes". It refers to a pictorial maxim, where these monkeys are refusing the evil not hearing, speaking, or seeing it (basically, it shows the "good behaviour").

Now I'm really curious, isn't kind of ironic that Mephisto is showing something like that? He is a demon after all. Wondering what is their purpose.

Is it me or the first monkey is covering its mouth, the one in the middle its ears and the other its eyes? It's like the phrase "don't see, don't hear, don't speek", but I don't know much about it.

Yes the three wise monkeys (like Poppy already mentioned), Mizaru, Kikazaru and Iwazaru, representing the see/hear/say no evil
(i think the reason they're 'monkeys' was cause -zaru (Saru, "monkey") used to be the negating of a verb?)
I like how Kikazaru, the hear no evil monkey, is even making noise, something like "lalalalala, can't hear you"

Arthur and Lightning for sure. Wonder if we'll get to see how the Grigori got hit by the Illuminati attack. Looks like Lightning is meditating on his conversation with the Exwires. He's probably thinking about why Renzou was returned to the Order. I doubt he buys Renzou's story about being loyal to the Order/Mephisto.

Intrigue intrigue intrigue, yay! I would be so happy for political shenanigans.

Oh good - i was a bit worried thinking that we were going to fall into another relatively filler arc. But looks like there's plot progress this time. And I'm curious to see how the upper echelons are handling the situation, and whether Grigori was heavily affected or not.

But, I still hope Katou finds time to bring in the ther other demon kings/more demons since this Illuminati arc is looking to be quite long.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: SimpleBliss on June 22, 2015, 10:49:06 PM
It seems to me the Illuminati isn't an "arc" but rather the major conflict of the series. Everything that happened so far, every arc, was just a test for the exwires so that they can be strong enough to fight Lucifer. He's also the top dog under Satan, and is trying to revive Satan.
 If any demon kings are showing up, it's going to be because Satan's revival is the final end and they're under him. They might pick a side, Lucifer's or Mephisto's, most likely Lucifer's, and we'll see them as a result of this war.

I agree. The last arc is called the Illuminati Arc but we really didn't learn anything about them besides Lucy's declaration of war. It was more about Gedouin and Izumo, while setting up Renzou's position as untrustworthy spy. I think we should call it the Inari arc.

The conflict seems more to me like Well-Intentioned Extremists duking it out. The Order and Illuminati are very similar -- absurd resources, powerful and treat crossing the Moral Event Horizon as a hobby. So not as much demon kings versus the Order as the Order versus the Order.

seriously this will be my reaction when yukio's secrets get exposed (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Z4m4lnjxkY&t=1m47s)

I wrote a fic recently about that. It turned psychologically brutal and made me sad. I ended up going off and writing a fluff piece of Shiro and Yukio after Yukio passed his exam (Shiro being such an exuberant proud father <3).
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread

But even if Yukio gets exposed, all he has to do is turn around and go "Yeah bro, your stupid Morina's contract is the reasons I couldn't get viable help from the True  Cross. Now cry into your religious tissues as I saunter over to the dark light side."

Although that's probably someone's plan all along.

JK, Yukio would never actually say any of that, but that's pretty much what it all boils down to.

As for the Illuminati, I just mean that it doesn't seem like any of the other kings are working with Lucifer but the True Cross seems to still be actively pursuing them. We're also not finished with the Gehenna Gate question nor the life/death stone so I don't think we would be switching plots soon (unless for the exam or something), so that's why I'm wondering how Kato intends to write the other kings in.

The cute one? I'll try to post it after Friday (yay conferences!)

(I would post to FF.net but the website always freezes when I try to upload something.

But even if Yukio gets exposed, all he has to do is turn around and go "Yeah bro, your stupid Morina's contract is the reasons I couldn't get viable help from the True  Cross. Now cry into your religious tissues as I saunter over to the dark light side."

"Sauntering"... interesting word choice xD. At least this would be a bit more eloquent than "screw you, screw the Order, screw everything, I'm out, just fuck it."

I'm betting the life-death stones and the fox okami are old gods, older than the "kin of" classification. Kinda like Kuro.

If I'm not mistaken, the latest demon profile for Mike and Uke said they were kin of spirits. Not sure about the ninetails, though.

My personal theory is that Inari is another name for Azazel just like Mephisto and Loki are alternative names for Samael.

Considering that Yukio is approaching the funny farm, I wouldn't be surprised if some other character picks up the leader / teacher role to share with Shura.

Lightning is too cunning to state his suspicions or plans up front. We might yet figure out what his real intentions for the Morinas were.

I'm actually surprised Suguro gets more focus.

Probably not going to happen in the chapter, but I keep getting this mental image where Yukio is doing his secret angsty thing off in an abandoned building, and Shima is sneaking through the building to spy on Yukio and report back to Lucifer, but then he trips over Dog Mephisto and falls down some stairs into Lightning, because everyone else already had the idea to spy on Yukio before him.

Lightning offers the other two some popcorn. They start betting on which thing he'll accidentally burn first. Yukio remains oblivious and angsty.

THIS NEEDS TO HAPPEN. 

I have a feeling the accidentally burning something is how he's going to be found out- Rin had trouble controlling his at first, and Yukio lacks Rin's mental strength- it's going to be even harder for him.

I'm betting it'll be someone... Rin, even when he had trouble controlling himself in crazy mode, never hurt a human. Rin's got a strong moral compass, as he tries to use his strengths for a "gentle" purpose.

In contrast, Yukio uses his strengths for survival (not living in fear of the darkness) and the mission. He isn't selfless or self-sacrificing like Rin. If something threatens him, he pushes back regardless of if they are human or not. Yukio's much more likely to seriously hurt someone.

You aren't the only one. Would it kill Kato to give us a mostly Yukio-centric chapter this time? I understand wanting to leave us in a bit of suspense, but I've noticed if mangaka wait too long, often times readers stop caring and instead of a "Wow, that was cool, so worth the wait!" you get a cynical "Geez, about damn time, this should have happened ages ago". *cough*BLEACH*cough* (Although I'd be lying if I didn't say I was at least excited about the most recent chapter, but only because one of my bbys is back. <3 But myself and a lot of other people are also like "Thank god, that story arc is over" too, which is another reason we're happy, lol).

 :'( :'( :'(
and i wanted to see more lucifer and wanted to know about yukio because it took us 3 fucking chapters and we still dont know anything about his power.....

Wait, do you mean that you're sad that it doesn't come out until late this week/early next week (in Japan, later for translations) (I'm sad about this too, I want it nooowwww) or that it doesn't come out at all this month? At the end of the last chapter they said it would continue this month and I haven't seen anything saying otherwise...

Well, technically the 4th is a Sunday, which by Japan standards would make the chapter's release next week. As far as having a chapter at all this month, there shouldn't be a problem since it's listed in this issue's ToC, Post #733 (https://mangahelpers.com/forum/showthread.php/2997584-JUMP-SQ-News-and-Discussion/page49). If you've heard news to the contrary, please do share.

chapter 72 is said to not have progressed at all (im not even surprised anymore) and i think renzou has finally given up as an aria to pursue a knight and tamer meister. yukio is still continuing with his emo phase. that's all i picked up. (if i picked it up correctly lol)

^ Well, atleast the chapter finally changed character focus from Bon to another character and this time it seems to have wrapped up the character focus of said character in one chapter rather than dragging his problems for many chapters. I am not that much bothered by the lack of progress since in my opinion the story will not be getting drastic progress until Yukio goes crazy and joins the illuminati which will probably happen anytime from around a week before the exams to probably a few days after the exams. Right now, the series will probably be focusing more on all characters and their preparations for the exorcist exams and as long as the focus will be a maximum of 1 or 2 chapters for each character (including the ones that dont get any screentime) I will be okay with it.

I am more surprised that Renzo took two meisters instead of just one considering how much more work that would be for him rather than the fact that he actually switched a meister from aria to knight which was expected for a long time.

It's impressive how much you despise Bon. I really didn't like him, but he grew on me at the end of the Kyoto arc (he's such a barrier princess :3).

Sigh. So far I can sum up each chapter in this volume as 40 pages of the Exwires going "yay we're almost exorcists!" while Lightning is just a precious Ameribun + 4 pages of Yukio angsting about while Linkin Park's "Crawling" plays in the background.

God, just give me my Yukio goes nuclear moment, I have been waiting for it since bloody chapter 16.

I don't despise him, I'm indifferent to his character. Its just that for a side character he gets considerably way more importance and screen time than all other exwires including the male and female protagonist and not to mention the constant praising other characters continuously give him like he is some sort of messiah or something, which is what is irritating me.

Seriously, in the beginning it looked more like Rin and Bon were going to be rivals but now it is pretty much Bon doing something great and Rin and Konekomaru falling head over heels for him and praising him, making me seriously question who is the protagonist of this story. It's okay to praise and admire someone but in Bon's case its really getting too much. Even Shiemi admires Izumo but I dont see her praising Izumo every single time she does something great.

If all other exwires would also get just as much screentime and importance as he gets and if the constant praises the other characters give him is toned down  a bit and there is actually more focus on calling him out on his recklessness, flaws and specifically the rude behaviour, I might actually enjoy his character. Bonus if the other characters are actually called out for their constant praising behaviour since its already confirmed that not being particularly helpful to Bon.

Hope I'm wrong, but considering that we still have to see Izumo, Shiemi, Rin and Konekomaru's preparations for the exam even the next volume is going to be similar to this one, just with different characters.

Rin's always had a massive mancrush on Bon. In the very beginning he said he was cool and after their big argument, nice.

Koneko is locked into the MYouDha way which is to protect the blood. Just what he does. I hope that he gets more independent as an exorcist, as we've started to see that.

I know their reasons but that still does not make it any less irritating and considering Bon outright stated that everbody praising him and keeping him at the top of the pedestal was wrong so I hope the constant praising is reduced eventually.

I thought that's what he'd do but FUCKING HELL IT'S STUPID. The last two times his eyes have gone off have been because he was molested by evil demons. It makes sense as a defense mechanism to potentially scare off enemies. How the heck is he going to scare the ground into not crushing his body into a billion mushy pieces.

Speaking of which, this is very applicable now. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h02a2HSB58M&t=1m2s

Calling it now: Yukio's power includes crazy healing ability. At this point he either succeeds  and fully awakens, or the Illuminati revives him.

I'm more curious to see Rin's reaction after this all goes down.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: justicecadet on October 03, 2015, 10:46:24 PM
For the last couple of chapters I've been holding off on this comparison but Yukio is acting a little too much like a Twilight character. Sans the romance, putting himself into danger to get a reaction, no baby no. And I'm all for Yukio angst arcs but idk how jumping off a building will help him get flame power. Or he gets it and still splats on the ground? Or flames shoot out of his eyes like a jet pack.
We do know he's being followed/watched right now and I hope it's the illuminati. Could be almost anyone at this time though. They might save him.
I do kind of agree about the disproportionate amount of time spent on characters. I am happy to see more of Bon since we've only had smatterings of his story arc and he is changing a lot! But it's a large cast and it's hard balancing all the characters. Now Izumo's arc is over and she and Shiemi (and Shura) are just shut out. The other guys (minus Takara) are a little more involved since obviously they're close with Bon. I almost feel like they could take some of the Yukio stuff out for now and add in more of the rest of the cast bc he's going to get a lot of screen time anyway. When I first started reading I was worried Yukio wouldn't get very much story with Bon as the main rival (and Shiemi as the main heroine) but steadily I think he gets more story than Rin... for now.
RIP Bon's hair. Too cool to last. But I like stories where characters change their hair and style so kind of nice.
I guess, I just don't see where Bon's love for Lightning is coming from. Lightning is really impressive but, I didn't really see Bon as the sort to want a mentor like figure. Probably bc of mixed feelings with his father. I felt like Rin would want a mentor (does Shura count as his mentor?)
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: Madow on October 03, 2015, 10:57:30 PM
I see Yukio unlocking his powers in a few chapters and then challenging rin, but rin completely trumps him because way more experiance and thats what would completely break yukio and make him turn to the illuminati's side

Gotta agree. I feel like this is the opposite extreme of the anime problem - instead of Yukio just going "lol im ebil nao kthxbai" we have this snail-pace random walk to the dark side.

Five bucks says that he'll be caught mid-air by Superman secret-agent-Illuminati before he becomes chunks'o'Okumura.

Shura's supposed to be Rin's mentor but we see so little of their training it's frustrating.

I think Bon just finds greasy American hobos attractive.

normally I'm the last person to want "less Yukio" but with such small Yukio teasers and also so much for the exwires Katou could probably do with less, or maybe have a Yukio chapter after ever few exwire chapters.

I'm up in the air about the new hair. It's not that I dislike it but the older style was very distinct. And kind of an image clash since he's actually this studious, disciplined guy. He took out his piercings too right? Or maybe he still has them. Too lazy to pull it back up.

Considering that the author is drawing chapter showing the direct comparison between Bon's character development and Yukio's descent into madness. I'm guessing we are going to keep getting chapter like these which  continuously shift between Yukio and Bon. Why is the author making the transition so painfully slow anyway?

Both Yukio's and Bon's development can really be done a bit faster and I hope it does so that the focus can really go back to the other less developed characters. Seriously why label so many characters as main characters if you cant balance the screen time for all of them. I seriously think Renzo and Konekomaru are not really necessary to be labelled as important characters since they are essentially a little more than satellite characters for Bon and their entire character development revolves around Bon. They could have instead been reduced to roles similar to Paku and Godaiin anyway. Rin, Shiemi, Bon and Izumo are the only exwires that stand on their own as full developed characters.

And Konekomaru's development as a leader really amounts to little when you consider that even if Bon is bad leader, he is the going to be the future leader of the myoudha, not Konekomaru so might as well focus on making Bon become a good leader unless the author is planning on making him a leader with a much more competent advisor which is really not telling a good thing about him.

I'm guessing we are going to keep getting chapter like these which  continuously shift between Yukio and Bon. Why is the author making the transition so painfully slow anyway?

I've been getting the feeling that we're going slow now because both Bon and Yukio will undergo significant personality changes over the next couple volumes. Bon seems to be dropping the rebellious routine (which was symbolized by his ridiculous hair) and Yukio seems to be dropping the restraint. Which makes me excited for Bon (I will be ecstatic if he drops the "kaname" mentality altogether) and terrified for Yukio (have a feeling he's gonna become a scary psychotic bastard).
 
And Konekomaru's development as a leader really amounts to little when you consider that even if Bon is bad leader, he is the going to be the future leader of the myoudha, not Konekomaru so might as well focus on making Bon become a good leader unless the author is planning on making him a leader with a much more competent advisor which is really not telling a good thing about him.

There's no reason for the MyouDha to protect the blood now that their enemy, the IK, is gone. I think that's why Tatsuma wanted Bon to stay away from that position, as Tatsuma planned to destroy the IK. Even now the Myou Dha is led by Yaozou and Uwabami, with Tatsuma relinquishing most duties except for ongoing investigations.

With that in mind, Bon doesn't need to be the leader any more. Koneko has much more dedication to MyouDha and would be better suited.

Apparently Konekomaru is developing a smartphone app where you can look up a demon and find their weaknesses/Fatal Verse? That is such a good idea that I'm surprised they don't have something like that yet. I'm surprised I never thought it was weird that they don't have something like that yet... The blogger compares it to the PokeDex, lol.

I nearly threw up a kidney laughing.

Koneko, you fool! You need image recognition to do that in a user-friendly way! You also need rapid time for a user to pull out the phone in a combat situation! Dictionary apps are not the way to go. But how do you do cross-platform support? Are you charging? Updates? But what is your project runway?

(i have useless knowledge about this subject. *quietly pokes my application for a mobile app award*)

Yukio, don't try to fight the ground. You won't win. Even with fire. ESPECIALLY with fire. Fire would just make you land on stuff that's on fire.

See, what he's doing would make sense if Satan's power was marshmallows. Because his eyes could turn the ground into marshmallows. And bounce.

Boingy.

Boingy.

Izumo underwent significant personality changes but it was done rather quick with her realizing about her foolish behavior in one chapter and then changing completely near the end of the arc. Bon's change is not something that is going to be too unpredictable so I dont know why she cant speed it up.

Bon is still the future head of the Myoudha because he belongs to the head family whereas Konekomaru belongs to the branch family. The only reason Yaozou and Uwabami are leading the myoudha is because Tatsuma refuses to do so and they are leading the moudha under the absence of his leadership. If Tatsuma one day decides to take command, both Yaozou and Uwabami have to obey. The head family is always superior to the branch families. The Kamiki family was also incharge of keeping the nine tails sealed but it was still the Inami head family that exerted control over them. And besides the Shima family clearly havent stopped treating Bon like the head so its pretty clear that Bon is still the future leader.

The pokedex scans a pokemon and tells you which it is as well as its details. If in Konekomaru's app you have to look up the demon then it sounds more like a search app where you to type the name of the demon and it will give the details as well as the fatal verses for it. And also this app will mostly be only used by arias who can access it while the knights and other meisters would be distracting the demon.

You know, Yukio could fire a wave of flames towards the ground in order to propel himself or reduce his speed towards ground and land safely. Also if activating those eyes atleast gives him the strength of a demon then falling from that height should not damage him since Rin was able to jump at great heights and land without any inury and for that matter, even Shima when infused with Yamantaka's strength was able to jump and land at nearly the same height that Rin fell down in chapter 60 without any injury. Of course that's not probably going to happen and he is going to be saved some other way.

Also, a little bit out of context, but in chapter 7 after Nehaus was stopped he told that there was another person like him that Rin needed to beware of. Was that person supposed to Shura or Angel, or was that person not revealed yet?

That was just bad translation. He was actually saying something like "There are more people like me (who will hate you for being the son of Satan)."

It's a very general warning, not refering to anyone in specific.

Possibly. I think it's because Mephisto finds it difficult to bait him. Unlike the Grigori, who hunger for a way of defeating Satan for all time, and Arthur, who is so devoted to his duty that his chain can be pulled easily, Lightning acts out of love for the world rather than a specific agenda. This means he's unpredictable, and has no issues with extremely generous or brutal means to accomplish his task.

Unfortunately those postings sound like speculation. We already know that Yukio's going to survive the fall and that Rin and Shiemi are suspicious. I also think we might be headed into a Shura arc (Lightning's question about immortal nagas and the fact that Shura's motifs are about dying young).

Am I the only one who is kind of hoping the kid will break both legs or something? At least that'd keep him from doing stupid things for a while.

Considering he's in the middle of nowhere and is unlikely to call emergency responders, he'd probably end up killing himself that way too.

This is all of us right now:

the worst thing to endure in this chapter is if the yukio part gets cut until the next chapter. that's how it feels when a cliffhanger happens. and the shura sidestory is gonna be awesome.

For what it's worth, if you ever need to figure out which date the English chapter will come out, you can figure it out by keeping in mind that the Japanese Jump SQ releases on the 4th of the month. The Viz chapter always releases on the following Monday. Pretty sure if the 4th is also Monday, then the Viz chapter is the following Monday (they need time to translate it), so there's the possibility of up to a full week delay because of that.

Last month (we got lucky) and the 4th was on a Sunday, so we got our chapter on the 5th (so we only had to wait a day). This month the 4th is a Thursday, so we'll get the new chapter on the 9th, and next month the 4th is a Friday so we'll get it on the 7th...etc.

I always miss Mephisto, when he is in the chapter things get spooky and interesting. But I do agree that we really had a lot of him lately and probably Kato will now  focus on Yukio and Shura it seems? so I will settle.
I'm really interested in Shura mostly because it was hinted that she has lived among demons (or something like that? maybe I'm remembering scenes from the anime if that's so forgive me) and maybe we will finally  know something more specific about them and all the immortal thing Lightning has asked Shura, plus Shiro is probably going to make an appearance so yay!

I hope this chapter is in its usual length of 31 pages or more. I want a lot of Yukio . this is also the first chapter in ages that bonbon isn't hogging the spotlight! feels refreshing (as far as spoilers are concerned)
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: earthforge on November 04, 2015, 02:48:25 AM
Sigh. I'm getting a feeling that we'll get 2-4 pages of Yukio max and the rest is exwire shenanigans. Honestly, I actually did want to see Rin and Shiemi's relationship improve (there's been very little on it since the end of the IK arc), but right now I just wanna know how Yukio lands.

Kinda agree JC. It seems like as everything comes together for Rin becoming an exorcist and having relationships / friends, everything's falling apart for Yukio until he just kicks everything away as a final act of spite.

i didn't dislike the very end of the anime per say but i disliked the stuff right before the very end with mysterious grandpa and yukio being very two dimensional and a jerk. where he's at right now in the manga, it would make sense if he wanted to go to the illuminati and got possessed. besides we got some neat clips of possessed yukio in the anime so i wouldn't mind seeing that again. ... but i don't know there was something lacking.

For one, Grandpa Palpatine just stunk at motivating Yukio to act against the Order. There was no reason for Yukio to follow Gramps to hell aside from a vague promise to turn Rin and Yukio human, whereas Lucifer is a charismatic cult leader who has offered Yukio everything he wants.

Anime!Yukio also allied with an extremist faction of the TC Order that got rid of the Grigori. That wasn't really believable considering Yukio was loyal to the original Order, or rather his belief in his Father's trust of the Order. In contrast, Manga!Yukio has a few legit reasons to join the Illuminati: safety, knowledge and freedom from his designation as Rin's protector.

I'd really prefer if it's not possession and more like whatever the frig Toudou does, the "human interfering with a demon" stuff.

I really hope it's confirmed that JUST Rin and Yukio will be going on that mission, alone. I'm expecting a lot of quick back and forth comments betwen them and some glares and suspicious glances. Basically a set up of their conflict but conflict nonetheless.

I'm not sure but I think at the end she says to not worry about/don't mind her or something like that. It's cut so I don't know the rest of the sentence.
Also, in one of the comment I think someone says there are various surprise and suspense in shura's past so I guess we will have a bit of her past in this chapter.  :D

^I think she might be telling them not to worry about her because she purposely never got attached to anything (because she knew she was going to die, I'm guessing?) Parts of the sentence are cut off though, like you said.

They look like they're going to go ahead and worry anyway.

Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: xyzt on March 30, 2016, 12:24:25 PM
^In all fairness, Rin's execution was never brought up for many months by anyone, and seeing how much of a carefree and normal life he is living with his friends (which is not even remotely close to the life of a person having the threat of an execution over his head), its not really a surprise he forgot about it. If I remember correctly, even some of the exwires had forgotten about his execution.

Also Rin has other attacks besides Kashou Zanmai and Hachirou unfortunately seems to be nowhere near the city wide destruction level demon that the impure king was. Besides, wasnt Hachirou supposed to have his powers sealed off. Unless the blue flames can break seals, I dont see Hachirou coming to his full power. 
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: MetallicArcher on March 30, 2016, 04:18:00 PM
I actually wondered, when Hachiro went hydra mode, if Rin might not have accidentally broken the seal with his flames.

I think it would be funny. Also maybe be the beatdown Rin needs to stop trying to win any fight by burning things down.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread

If Hachiro was vulnerable and not immortal, Rin would've fried his ass with the first volley of blue flames. But Hachiro, like the inflation zombies and Necrophage Godaiin, is immortal and can regenerate fast. So Rin has to use an anti-regeneration attack, and the only one that he has is Kashou Zanmai because it destroys every single cell of the enemy.

I think it would be funny. Also maybe be the beatdown Rin needs to stop trying to win any fight by burning things down.

Admittedly, what else can Rin do? His flames are his only strength.

We dont know how remarkable a swordsman Rin really is since he pretty much one hit KOed  all his opponents with only his flames and superhuman strength, and not any particularly exceptional swordsman skills. He is below Shura anyways when it comes to pure swordsmanship. Besides Amaimon, there hasn't been a single opponent who came even close to truly pushing him into a corner.

So Rin has to use an anti-regeneration attack, and the only one that he has is Kashou Zanmai because it destroys every single cell of the enemy.


You mean necrophage Gedouin right? And Gedouin was one shotted by Izumo with an attack that was nowhere near as powerful as the Kashou Zanmai attack that Rin used against Impure King. Also it is not the attack but Rin's flames that can destroy the demon. Even Juuzo can use that attack but it is much smaller than Rin's attack is. The attack against the impure king was huge because the impure king covered the entire mountain and destroying him required an attack of that scale whereas Hachirou is nowhere near as huge or powerful as the impure king was. The reason he didnt die could be because Hachirou was in his sealed state or it could be that the snakes around him also were a part of him.

Ah Blue Knight, thanks for being my oasis in a sea of terrible April Fool's websites.

You mean necrophage Gedouin right? And Gedouin was one shotted by Izumo with an attack that was nowhere near as powerful as the Kashou Zanmai attack that Rin used against Impure King.

Izumo used a purification attack like Kashou Zanmai, but the elixir saved Gedouin.

Also it is not the attack but Rin's flames that can destroy the demon.

Nope, it's a combination of three things that allowed Rin to kill the IK:
1. Rin's massive power to zap a small college campus.
2. Blue flames can kill anything the user wants (not solely demons like Yamantaka or material objects like Ucchusma's standard issue flames)
3. Kashou Zanmai is Rin's only effective attack against a regenerating enemy.

With only the first two, Rin was swinging at the IK over and over again without making so much as a dent in it.

Quote
The reason he didnt die could be because Hachirou was in his sealed state or it could be that the snakes around him also were a part of him.

The seal only confines Hachiro to Lake Towada. Hachiro is still immortal as shown in his regeneration from Shiro's attacks in the past and Rin's attacks currently.

Rin did destroy the gigantic regenerating zombie fusion that was slowly absorbing him as well as other zombies with his flames and he didnt use kashou zanmai in that case, and those zombies were also immortal due to the elixir experiment

And all of Rin's attacks before Kashou Zanmai were merely small scale slash attacks that didnt even cover a 10th of the impure king's entire body and it was stated that as long as even a cell of the impure king survives it can regenerate from it. Although if the heart is destroyed how will it still continue to regenerate is something I cant understand.

She says: I guess it's July now, so...The August issue of Jump SQ goes on sale on 7/4 (and so does the tankoubon). We've got the cover and a color page! Here's part of the manuscript for this month's issue. I never stop being amazed by my assistants...

(That place reminds me of the room where Toudou met with Lucifer after the Impure King arc, but there aren't enough IVs for Lucifer to be here. Hmmm.....)

I don't believe that's what Kato is trying to do. If anything, this is probably going to continue the development of Rin and Shiemi's relationship after chapter 73. It was kind left a little awkward between them after Rin's confession.

 but im hoping they're real because to be honest i kinda like amaimon. i wanna see him in uniform. better not screw his design kato sensei! lol. plus, he's not back for shiemi romance or whatever. mephisto's trying to mold the kids for something stronger. amaimon can be small fry to rin but if rin keeps on sparring with humans, he won't be as challenged as sparring with a demon lord. i sense amaimon's return as a development for shiemi also. if both form a pact, what bad does that give shiemi? lol
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: earthforge on September 03, 2016, 02:36:43 AM
Got to be fake. Makes no sense. Amaimon has always been a threat to the Exwires. Plus, he can't see Rin without picking a fight because he's still infuriated that Rin kicked his ass. He is the last character to be stuffed in a school uniform and be sent to class.

Oops I derped.
I was more referencing Kato developing Rin x Shiemi more than Shiemi x Amaimon since you're right about Amaimon not being a contender. I just realized that came out more confusing than need be. Disregard that.

She says that lately when she draws Suguro it goes through a stage like this (drawing him bald for fun). I see the phrase "Blue Night" in the speech bubble but can't read anything else.

Can I hope for Lightning interacting with Amaimon because that would be hilarious

We better get a lot of Lightning next chapter. Bonus points if he talks to Amaimon as if Amaimon's a normal student while Bon freaks out and does his usual straight-man/ tsukkomi routine.

But I'd settle for more Blue Night info.

I found this ... It is the plot of ch. 83 in japanese... I used google translate but if someone understands japanese it will be way better to understand hehe

Here:

地の王アマイモンが現れて燐に突っかかるが、しえみは勇気を振り絞って間に入り対抗する。

自分もエクソシストになるから逃げない、と叫ぶしえみの声で失恋のショックから目覚めた燐は、アマイモンの攻撃を制し、”今まで通りの友達”として一緒にエクソシストを目指そうとしえみに伝えた。

 

燐を慰めるために放課後ぽんちゃんに行こうと話す中、ライトニングから連絡が入った勝呂は1人学校を出る。

勝呂からアマイモンの復活を聞いたライトニングは、フェレス卿が何かの意図思って行ったに違いないと考えを巡らせる。
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: Dewchorom on October 04, 2016, 02:03:11 AM
Just figured out that there is more:

青い夜直後に日本支部から離職した人物たちを探っていくと、元聖騎士藤本獅郎が院長をしていた修道院(燐と雪男が育った場所)に3人も存在することが分かった。

中でも三角は正十字学園大学で遺伝創薬研究の第一人者だったものの、青い夜後に職を変えて警備員を22年、そして修道士を16年と奇想天外な職歴を歩んでいる。

「話せば殺される」と泣き始めた三角を強く尋問するライトニングだったが、勝呂にやりすぎだと止められて手を引くことに。

しかし三角はライトニングの言葉に動かされて、死ぬ前に全てを懺悔したいと話し始めた。

 

わ 私は

十三號セクションにいた…!

エリクサ…!

 
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: Dewchorom on October 04, 2016, 02:06:29 AM
そこまで話したところで、三角の後ろに時の眷属”死神”(デス)が現れて、三角の命の砂時計を割る。

三角の首元にはモリナスの契約書が刻まれており、ライトニングはその作成者に心あたりがあるようだった。

命がけで大量のヒントを落としてくれた三角に感謝しながら、ライトニングは勝呂と共に修道院を後にする。

その頭の中には、イルミナティにつながる”エリクサー”、つまり不老不死の妙薬のことが浮かんでいた。

Katoh says "This is a line I cut from the final version. But now I wish that I'd left it in. Not that it matters."
One of the people retweeting it mentions that Yukio's line happens to be a haiku, lol.

Meanwhile, Suguro and Lightning are trying to solve some kind of puzzle/riddle where there's a carving of a hand and one of a key, and if they can get the hand to hold the key I think a door opens or something? We left them alone for like five minutes and everything became The Legend of Zelda.

I think the site only spoke about them not including Shiemi... But since in the beginning it says on the chapter plot smth like "what is shiemi's mom trying to say to shiemi" i think shiemi will be on it.... I REALLY HOPE TuT

Hopefully we get a full chapter. Fingers crossed for Moriyama family history.

i think shiemi's revelation is going to begin after bon and lightning have finally come up with the  final answer to all this research elixir cloning drama before shiemi is revealed to be something else or it could all be put altogether with arthur, demon kings and the birth of the twins but heck that's all information overload.

this is also what i was thinking too. either shiemi and her mom get to be in the  next chapter and coincide with lightning and bon's investigation. but i remember they were at mephisto's? maybe they'll continue with the baths scene, or back at school setting with bon oggling the twins differently? i hopewe get to see a difderent persepective this coming chapter

I see "Mori Fatum" on the wall.

Is Mori stands for Moriyama ?  Maybe it is a hidden story between the Moriyama family and the Order.


-----
Edit:  Maybe not. Both "Mori" and "Fatum" are Latin and part of Order's symbol.

        Anyway, this place should belong to the Order.

I thought of the same thing. Mori -> Moriyama.


The sentence is "vita mori fatum"
mori is die/death
:/


the sentence means something like life is destined to die


The motto of the Order is "Bellum fatum vita mori"

I really hope this chapter explains what Shiemi's mother wants to tell her. I've been waiting for 2 months! :'(
"Vita Mori Fatum" huh? The word Mori might have something to do with Moriyama, but probably not since they're two different languages. Would this be the slogan of a secret branch of the Order? The Order itself has the motto, "Bellum Fatum Mori Vita". Interesting that both mottoes mention life, death, and fate.

^ It'd be so funny if the panel is really just of Bon and Lightning leaving Lightning's office while Bon goes on and on about some moral thing and that's the entirety of the chapter. Or we see Shiemi affected by what she's been told but we aren't told what she's been told. Heh.

Any bets on who will be on the cover for this volume? If we don't learn about Shiemi in the next two chapters, I'm putting money on Mephisto being the cover.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: tandem on February 02, 2017, 01:12:24 AM
So far Mephisto is the most possible one since we don't have many characters show up in the last two chapters. Maybe the inner cover will be Mephisto together with the other demon kings.

I still hope in the next few chapters we will get some explanation of the Shiro mystery recently discussed on the forum. Then maybe Shiro can finally on the cover.

I am still finding so many connexions with the second part of the old anime. There was a happy birthday party too and at the end of the episode someone introduced grandpa to Yukio. Maybe this time Yukio will meet one member of the Satan's clan? It is scary how the manga has references to those filling episodes.

Of course I bet for a new advance of Lucifer to Yukio too.

Post by: Taytronics7 on February 22, 2017, 02:55:10 PM
I really wish that this series came out more than once a month :'(
Instead I have to spend my time over analyzing this story and once a new chapter finally comes out, Katou throws us a curve ball and I have to rethink everything I've thought about over the course of the month. But that's what I love about this story.  ;D

Since this is a spoiler moping thread, moping about spoilers is what I will do(and posting a few theories) ; 8).
I've analyzed Chapter 87 again and again waiting for the arrival of Chapter 88, and I noticed a few more things:

In the panel where Shiemi's eye gets a close up, we see some sort of light in her eye. At first, I assumed it was the moon reflecting off of her eye. However, I remembered that her mother had an umbrella and that it was raining. If it was raining, we wouldn't be able to see the moon since the clouds would cover it up. We also know that it couldn't be the sun as it doesn't rise until the next page. This realization got me thinking: were we right to say that Shiemi had some sort of connection with Lucifer? He is known as the king of light, and we still haven't figured out all of the details of the cloning asylum.
I've reached two possible conclusions.
1. Shiemi is in fact a clone of Lucifer's and somehow inherited his power.
2. This one is a little more crazy, but hear me out. What if Shiemi's father is none other than Lucifer himself? I originally thought this could be plausible  until we heard about Shemihaza and the similarities between him and Shiemi. But maybe she's related to both? Shiemi and Lucifer are the only two characters revealed so far to have platinum blonde hair and green eyes. Her mother has brown hair and blue eyes, so Shiemi's traits must have come from her father. It would also explain her strange behavior, as she tends to have difficulty understanding emotions. Her isolation certainly didn't help. Speaking of her isolation, this always raised red flags for me. Her mother's explanation is that she was too shy and sickly to go outside. Being sick I can understand, like if she had a poor immune system and her body couldn't fight off disease. But this was not the case because in Chapter 82, her mother says that she was teased as a child, and as a result of that, began to feel ill in the morning. Her shyness though is the biggest problem I have. Throughout my life, I've had to overcome extreme shyness, and the only way that you get used to social interactions is by having them. If she wanted her daughter to be more outgoing, she should've had Shiemi go to school and be forced to interact with other people. I theorize that maybe one day when she was being teased, she ended up hurting the other kids due to stress (similar to Rin) and her mother decided to keep her at home. She also could've had a seal that weakens under extreme stress, and putting her in stressful situations everyday would be too risky.     

SO. MANY. TRAITORS. Who's this chapter's traitor? Tune in next month to find out! Haha, but seriously Katou, if you keep introducing traitor after traitor no one will care anymore. That's why everyone is talking about Shiemi and not the traitor giving Lucifer secrets! I don't think it's the Romanian Arch Knight, it's too obvious and I don't know how you could get past a Morinas Contract. Neuhaus? He wouldn't revive Satan. Mephisto? He is suspicious, but I don't think he would betray the Order after everything he's done for them. I've seen some people argue that the traitor is Arthur and that he's a sleeper agent for the Illuminati since he doesn't remember anything before the Blue Night. I don't really see the connection (Would be a cool reveal though). In order to give Lucifer the research material, the person would have to be a scientist or at least have access to the material. Mephisto seems to not know(LIAR)and is making Lightning point the finger. Personally? I have no idea who it is. There just hasn't been much said about them for me to make a conclusion. My best guess is that it's someone we know well and would not expect to betray the order.

Oh, this's not so crazy! At least it would explain why Shiemi won't take the exorcist exam. Because being a demon could be shocking at first but she could follow the example of Rin. Ergo I don't think this made her break the promise she made to  Rin.
But being Lucifer's daughter (or clon) might force her to stop being an exorcist. 
If we think about it, Shiemi has spent all her life into the Barriers of the True Cross Academy. May be because she has to be protected. This could be why Amaimon was keeping an eye on her (Mephisto's orders)

About the traitor, I would love if finally he's a totally unexpected character, something thrilling. Someone no one suspects.
But I don't have any clue either.

I feel like the Romanian Arch Knight, Neuhaus, or Arthur are all tricks in this chapter to misdirect the readers, so they are probably the least suspicious ones.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: earthforge on February 23, 2017, 05:34:49 PM
^ I'm betting either Drac or one of the Sol are the traitor. It has to be someone in the Arc Knights or above to have consistently escaped Lightning's notice.

1. Shiemi is in fact a clone of Lucifer's and somehow inherited his power.

The biggest argument against Shiemi herself being a clone is how her age would make her born several months before the Blue Night. Clones of that age would've been at Section 13 and I doubt any would've survived. (But I do believe Maria Yoshida was a Lucy clone, given her age and appearance.)

I'm also iffy on connections to Lucy. Shiemi's powers are connected to plants and growth. There's no indicators she has any light-based power. Plus, if she really had demon powers due to heritage, why would she be affected so strongly? Shiemi doesn't generally care about others' heritage, and she seems to still be affectionate to her greenman familiar. I really think that means that something happened between the Order and her family. It would explain why she keeps her familiar and hangs out with her mixed-heritage friends, but simply won't become an exorcist working for the Order.

Oooh! Idea: What if the Amahara garden is behind Shemihaza's gate?

The reason I thought that Shiemi could be related to Lucifer was because of the timing of her birth. Her birthday is March 6, which would mean that she was conceived in June. The Asylum was still operating at the time. We know this because in Chapter 81, Lightning says that the Okumura brothers were born around the time of the Blue Night. Since their birthday is December 27th, Shiemi's mother possibly was helping the research by agreeing to have Shiemi, and was already pregnant with her during the Blue Night.

I totally agree with you though on the Amahara Garden! It seems very likely since Shemihaza is the Emporer of Creation.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: tandem on February 24, 2017, 05:12:53 AM
Until now I don't think the argument to relate Shiemi and the section 13 experiment plausible, majorly because Shiemi is physically weak and hasn't shown any evidence to have supreme body ability. Even if in the crack theory that she is Lucifer's daughter, I think it is more possible that Lucifer and her mother had Shiemi by natural way instead of by the experiment.

Anyway, so far the argument is only from blonde hair color, which I consider as a relatively weak evidence. The same thing can be said to Arthur.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: Wikkelsoee on February 24, 2017, 08:21:15 AM
The demon heritage thing is getting old. I don't see why Shiemi would mind that either, when she's completely accepting of Rin and Izumo. I don't get how that would make her quit the cram school either.
I'm with Earthforge on this one. Something had to happen between the Order and her family.

maybe shiemi was designed as a vessel for demon procreation? sounds perverted but wasn't she related to shemihaza of some sort? it doesn't make sense. i know. so far, she's been attributed to strength and innocence. plants ...... symbolizing maybe growth and life. this has been going for awhile. she's got strong affinity to demons almost befriending/ charming one easily (e.g mike and uke, seamonk? , the twins??? except for amaimon???? ) aside from that, lack of understanding towards normal human norms out of sheer overprotectiveness by her mum? i i felt lonely reading that. even the twins got birthday celebrations. her own mum treats her like she's some sort of different species, she doesn't know what a birthday is so her birthday is just any other normal day? my sweetheart. i think this has to do of a very powerful force shiemi has. poor girl had to back off the exorcist chuunin exams before she roasts naruto rin and sasuke izumo to pieces. it's hard deciphering shiemi especially when she's tangled with arthur, elixirs, blue night and section 13. the only thing im praying for is......... for amaimon to help her pull that power out. maybe even  understand herself more through a full demon. how? i have literally no idea. i just want them to be friends dammit.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: Luzmela on February 24, 2017, 11:26:51 AM
A vessel for demon procreation. An interesting idea. Hmmm. I am wondering. Perhaps Amaimon naming her as his bride is more than a teasing to Rin. Maybe Shiemi is indeed his bride. As Amaimon rules earth and Shiemi has not only a familiar conected with earth but she is totally conected with that element.

It is a bit perverse but it would be a good turn of plot in the relationship between Shiemi and the twins.

I can only remmember Mephisto' s words before releasing Amaimon: " it is time" Time for what?
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: Taytronics7 on February 24, 2017, 01:46:48 PM
A vessel for demon procreation? That would be pretty dark. I hope that's not the case.

Yeah, I'm starting to doubt the whole "Shiemi is a result of the Asylum" thing. I liked it simply because it would tie into what Lightning and Bon are investigating and it would explain why she is so powerful with taming. Maybe they would connect with the traitor sub plot though? Maybe Lightning would see Shiemi acting secretive and start to think that she knows something important enough to investigate? He's a pretty sharp guy.

I find it so strange that Amaimon has taken such an interest in Shiemi. Like, she pushes him and he decided, "Wow, you pushed me? That's it. I'm going to transfer specifically to your class at the last minute, glare at you menacingly during said class, and then creep on you from the tower near your house". What do you guys think?

Shiemi was an essential part of the Exwire team. She was the only Exwire who specialized in Doctor, and her familiars were routinely useful for barriers and healing. Without her, the team can't function independently. She must rediscover that becoming an exorcist is about more than herself, but about protecting her friends. I'm certain that Amaimon was released to push Shiemi to recommit to becoming an exorcist. Mephisto probably expected that Shiemi at this time would be mentally strong enough to hear the truth, and he needs Shiemi on the team. Amaimon is a vindictive idiot so he's provoking her in class. I'm betting Mephisto ordered him to observe her, knowing Amaimon's an easily-provoked idiot who will push her to grow.

As for her being a vessel... eep.

As cool as that would be, it's highly unlikely to happen for several reasons. For one, Amaimon has one-shot Rin when he's being serious. He's not one to trifle with lightly (which is why it was super gutsy of her just to have pushed him). Secondly, Sheimi uses an Earth element demon, and Amaimon's King of Earth. It's just not a good match-up. Right now though, my guess is just that Mephisto's using Amaimon to keep an eye on her, and will maybe have him push her a little, if this does indeed end up being her character development arc.

At this point, do we really need another character development arc? I'm so sick of them at this point, Shiemi's development mainly happened over the duration of the manga, unlike Izumo whose happened quickly. At this point, I feel like Kato has forgotten Rin is the MC
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: tandem on February 26, 2017, 04:09:24 PM
I don't think we will see Shiemi's development very soon, for the author is intentionally delay the revelation of what her mother told her. If she will have a development arc, then we will have the birthday party chapters first (corresponding to the school festival chapters before Izumo's arc), and then 3 or 4 volumes to develop Shiemi since her arc should not be shorter than Izumo's.

However I don't like to wait for another long arc and actually hope her development integrate with the final arc of AOEX. I totally agree that we need more Rin now. Maybe he is smart enough to find out what's behind Shiemi's quit by himself, although in Chapter 87 he seems still stuck in the mood that Shiemi "rejected" him. One thing bothers me about the RinXShiemi pairing is that Rin never really knows Shiemi's heart. This is his chance.

In addition, I want a Koneko-focused chapter, for he has been completely background for 20 chapters.

Koneko based chapter sounds great! Whenever he's in the spotlight, I know I will love the chapter.

I can imagine Shiemi's arc to be one of the longest arcs in the series, considering she's the main heroine. Why do I get the feeling that her arc will be the one of the darkest/most angst filled?

I agree. Amaimon is easily set off and is very vindictive. Maybe Shiemi quitting being an exorcist IS her way of protecting her friends? The way I see it, Shiemi always puts others before herself. Whatever her mother told her, it clearly terrified her and she didn't want anyone else to know so that they wouldn't be worried.
Am I the only one who thinks that whatever her mother told her, it wasn't about the Order or at least it wasn't a big factor? A very popular theory that I've seen is that Shiemi and her family are nephilims of Shemihaza. Her mother runs the Exorcist Shop and plays the part of Shemihaza at meetings. Because Shiemi is a nephilim, she must eventually replace her mother as Shemihaza and as such, cannot be an exorcist due to the danger of possibly losing the last nephilim of Shemihaza. The Order wouldn't want to lose one of the future Grigori, and therefore must intervene. I disagree with this theory mainly because her mother stated that if Shiemi still wanted to be an exorcist after she heard the secret, she wouldn't stop her. If the above theory is true, it wouldn't make sense for her mother to give her a choice in the matter.

Looks like the expected party planning. Tbh, we are long over-due for a breather chapter. IIRC the last one was the bath chapter, which was around 20 chapters ago, and the True Cross Festival breather was a long while ago. To everyone moping, remember every breather chapter / miniarc has preceded explosive events. The exams should be wild.

Seems like there's some sibling bickering in this chapter, and I'm always happy to see that. ^__^

I love the breather chapters, TBH. They're usually a lot of fun. Loved the bathhouse chapter.

Here's hoping Yukio joins in on the party willingly. He seems to go out of his way to avoid having fun when he has the chance. Shura had to boob-headlock him to the bathhouse, lol (loved that).

Looks like Paku's there for the planning too. I wonder if Rin will invite Godaiin? It'd be cute if he did. I am so excited for this chapter, I'm sure it'll be super cute either way! (Between this and Friday's anime episode, I'm just like "GAH! GIVE NOW!")

Thank God that we're finally getting a breather chapter this time. We've just been getting hit with bomb shell after bomb shell, so this is a relief to see.

I also hope Yukio goes to the party. I'm betting he'll do it just to make Shiemi happy. He's got a big soft spot for her.  ;)

Rin seems to be the most upset at Shiemi quitting, which doesn't surprise me. Man, I haven't seen Shiemi this nervous since the beginning of the series, based on the pictures. She must be really going out of her comfort zone planning this party.

She's planning to quit Exorcist school, but staying at regular school, so she'd still be able to see them there. Pretty much what Paku did, and they still see Paku quite often (even if she doesn't show up in the manga much). I can see them celebrating it in the dorm Rin and Yukio live in, if only because they have the run of it and there's plenty of space.

However, I actually felt like that the way she talked and her enthusiasm to the birthday party indicated she'll be leaving.

I have the impression that in the last panel (if I'm not getting this wrong), they're all smiling to Yukio (since he seems to be the one who should be sitting in that position, having Shima and Shiemi besides him as shown in one of the first panels). That scene alone is so heartwarming :) Yukio deserves so much love *hugs him*

^The list on the Jump SQ website only shows the series that have color pages or special promotions--it's maybe half the stuff that's actually in the issue. Blue Exorcist was just on the list for a bajillion months in a row recently because of the anime, is all.

Since the last chapter said it would be continued in this month's issue and Katoh hasn't tweeted about any unexpected circumstances that would cancel it, I assume we get it on 5/2 (Jump SQ is being released early to avoid Golden Week instead of late).

Especially since we're all seeing a catastrophe on the horizon waiting to result in what will be less wedding and more demon-hijinks followed by someone probably dying. Or maybe it's all just a tease and we get another small arc where nothing really bad happens. Probably not. We now have more characters we should be caring about, most of which are from the family of a single character, which is always a good sign for that character. So...be prepared to have a lot of fun times while I have fun times doing 3 hours of math-problems :D

I guess next month we should have at least 2 major progress
a. The consequence of the demon's attack
b. The consequence of Lightning's attack (on Drac)

With probably a few pages for the Kyoto people (Yumi doesn't want Konoko leave, etc...)

Therefore we may have very little progress of the main characters (probably except the cliffhanger at the end)

^ We're only on volume 20. With five chapters on average per volume, ending in volume 25 would mean only 25 more chapters. The main arcs in this manga have ranged from 6 to 18 chapters. At the most dense packing, that'd allocate 1-3 arcs with barely any interstitial arcs. It could work if the plot focuses on Shiemi/Takara/Blue Night conspiracy. Leaves no room for Renzou/Illuminati internals.

But ye, we will most likely go over 25 volumes, with every loose plot we have right now.

It has sense that a new story arc begins, now that Lightning has been arrested.
I bet this arc will be dedicated to Yukio dark part development, and probably some new contact with Lucifer could happen during next chapters.

Even though I love Yukio, I hope he isn't going to get too much spotlight in the next few chapters. Seeing him constantly agonize over his past I'm afraid will get boring after awhile. I get that this is part of his spiral towards the Illuminati, but we have other subplots that need development, like Lightning and Drac's conflict and Shiemi's secret.

Yeah, Yukio is crashing in on every plot thread like the Kool-aid Man. But I don't think I could get bored again with AoEx unless Kato resurrected Gedouin and started showing his face in every other panel again.

I think Yukio's plot-thread will wrap up fast and/or connect back to Renzou, paralleling Lightning's arrest by the Order and attempt to pursue Drac. I'm gonna bet that Drac is actually not and Illuminati spy, and that the real spy is either one of the Grigori or maybe Arthur under a spell?

Shiemi's secret though... that's gonna be dragged out, ain't it? Sigh.

Although considering the anime, I always thought Shiemi's connection to Neuhaus' wife seemed weird, almost as if she was suddenly not an exorcist (and Rin was suddenly angry, almost as if something bad had happened to him *cough* Yukio defecting *cough*). Maybe Shiemi's secret will tie to Neuhaus?

Either way, this manga is heating up and I am on the edge of my seat for the next chapter! 1.5-2 weeks to go, depending on if spoilers are leaked.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: Taytronics7 on July 21, 2017, 05:06:51 PM
^If Drac isn't the spy, then why would Lightning prosecute him? He has that mark on his neck that Lightning knew about but didn't bother to tell the audience what it was, maybe that's the key. One of the Grigori being the tratior would be shocking. Maybe it was that nephilim that sympathized with Lucifer and that's how he got the elixir research?

Yeah, the whole Shiemi Neuhaus's wife thing was weird. We still don't know what he's doing in there.

He wasn't in an appropriate environment to browse secret materials
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: Kittykat on July 31, 2017, 05:32:47 PM
He looks like he's processing some big info.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: Cloelia on July 31, 2017, 06:42:34 PM
So, let's try to analyze the preview pic.

- Looks like it's still snowy.
- It's still nighttime as in one of the panels below it looks dark outside of the window.
- Yukio is still in his uniform.
- His mouth in the first panel looks parted as he's speaking but in the second panel there's no one next to him so I assume it's probably just parted cause he's "breathing"?
- In this case, he's just processing something in his mind. I have a little doubt about this part because thoughts are not usually expressed in balloons. The only other explanation is that he's reminiscing the words of someone else.
- He boards a subway (?).
- It looks like he takes a seat and starts (as Kittykat pointed out) processing something quite important.
- Imo he doesn't look so "shocked".

Aside this, I was thinking: the only thing we can get by the pic is that he's taking a subway to go somewhere. Now, the fact that he's using a subway and not a train or a plane it means it must be somewhere not too far from where the Cyclop's accident happened. So somewhere in Tokyo. But the fact he's traveling by subway makes me think it has to be some place he can't access with one of his keys. So it's nothing Order related? Ok, these are my thoughts so far. Sorry, just felt like sharing them.
Title: Re: Spoiler moping thread
Post by: Cherub on July 31, 2017, 11:32:57 PM
I've always pictured him catching the subway if he was gonna sneak off for whatever reason and now it's actually happening.

So, we are getting a new chapter this month right?

I think there's more to Renzous reaction than we currently see. I seriously doubt that he is impressed by Yukios state knowing that satan may potentially posses him, unless he is heading onto the psychopath road...

Are we all assuming its Satan because Yukio is assuming it? It could very well be his inner demon like Rin's "I've been suppressed all this time... Rawr." I'm still sticking with the theory that Yukio's power had been sealed when Rin's was sealed.

...you guys probably want some words to go with that don't you? (Instead of just me cursing off into the distance)

I CAN'T

OML Isn't that the exact words of TOUDOU though!? I'm so confused, did Shima say that!?

WAIT WAIT WAIT I NEEDTOCALMDOWN

So did Yukio just try to kill himself (AND OML IVE ALWAYS THOUGHT HE'D SAY: "I'm so tired" or something before shooting hismelf - my horrible dark fantasies are being lived out and I dunno if I like this or not!)

From what I'm getting Shima disintegrated the bullet, right? Right?
I really wanna see Shima's face in these panels :<

Has the actual chapter come out digitally yet or not? These spoilers are killing me..

HOLY SHIT YUKIO... what the hell was on that flash drive to make him go in this direction?? Is Shima there because he's been tasked with watching Yukio, or does this relate to what Lightning wanted him to do? Is something really bad about to happen to Shima? And who is that running down the stairs in the last panel...!?

There are so many questions! And I have a feeling we'll still have more questions than answers with this chapter, but still, god what a wait... but Jump comes out on the 4th, right? How did these screenshots even get taken unless it's available somewhere, I wonder.

I mean, good to know Yukio's effectively immortal I guess?? It's like he's got the worst guardian angel hiding out in his eyes.

Absolutely no idea what was on that USB. Like, holy cow idk my mind is still processing this...

I wished we could get our hands on this -- it sucks being in another country sometimes. (I wanna post this for spoilers on tumblr but idk how to feel rn... I think I'd feel bad that it wasn't actually out yet on sites, and there I am tossing pain to people).

Pfft. Guardian angel? That is the best sa
